The State Department of Health announced Monday that it is implementing Covid-19 vaccine booster guidelines for 5- to 11-year-olds who were adopted last week of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Children in the age group who received their first two-dose series of Pfizer vaccines should receive a booster – what would be their third dose – five months after receiving their second dose, the state agency said.

Those children who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should receive what would be their fourth dose three months after receiving their third dose.

Appointments at state-run, mass vaccination sites can be made at am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov. Other sites where the free vaccine is available can be found at vaccines.govby writing your zip code to 438829 or by calling 800-232-0233.
