COVID-19 Vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11

Content verified November 29, 2021

Vaccine for ages 5 to 11 is being distributed to local health departments, private medical practices, and pharmacies in Maryland. Two thirds of the doses will be provided by pharmacies and health care providers and about one third will be provided by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).Take advantage of the many places to get vaccinations.

We get more doses weekly. Initially, the number of doses will be limited--please be patient. We will not be able to vaccinate every eligible child immediately. Check with your health care provider to see if they are offering vaccinations.

We estimate that we have more than 100,000 children in the age 5 to 11 group. It will take some time to fully vaccinate every eligible child who wants it.

Children ages 5 to 11 get 2 doses of the Pfizer vaccine, 3 weeks apart. The pediatric vaccine is specially packaged. It is NOT interchangeable with the Pfizer doses given to people age 12 and older.

Many locations offer children’s appointments

Check County-run clinics

You must make an appointment for your child to get their COVID-19 vaccine at a County-run clinic. We cannot accept walk-ups—no exceptions. We plan our clinics’ vaccine supply so no leftover doses are wasted at the end of the day. 

If you need technical help making your child’s appointment, call the COVID-19 Call Center at 240-777-2982 (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.). When online appointments are full, the Call Center does not have more appointments available.

Make a County-run clinic appointment

Our children’s clinics have vaccine doses for children ages 5 to 11. These clinics will have a small number of doses for people age 12 and older.

Follow the Department of Health and Human Services at @MoCoDHHS on Twitter and @mocdhhs on Facebook to see when more clinics and appointments are added.

Prepare for your child’s appointment

Have your child wear clothing with easy access to their upper arm. We will ask them to roll up their sleeve for their vaccine dose.

Arrive no more than 15 minutes early for your child’s appointment. Every child with an appointment is guaranteed to get their vaccination during the clinic they registered for.
