Appointments Now Available For Hoosiers Ages 5-11 To Receive COVID-19 Vaccine

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Health announced Thursday that COVID-19 vaccination appointments for Hoosiers ages 5-11 can now be scheduled by visiting or calling 211 or 866-211-9966.

Appointments and pre-registration are strongly recommended to help minimize wait times and ensure that sufficient vaccine is available, according to a news release from the ISDH.

The Pfizer vaccine is the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use in individuals under age 18. The pediatric dose is lower than the dosage for ages 12 and older; locations carrying the pediatric dose for children ages 5 to 11 are designated by a pin on the map at

Pediatric vaccine supplies may be limited initially as shipments arrive on a staggered basis, so appointments may be spread out over several days. Additional sites will be added to the map as vaccine arrives.

A parent or guardian must provide consent for the vaccine, and children under 16 must be accompanied to the vaccination appointment by an adult.
