Local pediatricians and select pharmacies will have pediatric doses and can schedule for those that prefer to go to the clinic and not a mass clinic. The pediatric vaccine is different than the adult formulation so supply will be a bit slow the first couple of weeks of distribution but like adult vaccines, supply and availability will pick up throughout the month.

 

If approved by the CDC, the recommended vaccination schedule will be two doses, 21 days apart, meaning the second dose will be around December 3rd and 4th.  The COVID-19 vaccination bus will be in Routt County on December 5th.  More details to follow.
