COVID-19 vaccine to those younger than 5
The Indiana Dept. of Health recently announced that COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 6 months up to 5 years are now available at some Indiana providers, expanding the population eligible to be protected against the disease.
The IDOH has updated its map at www.ourshot.in.gov to show sites that have indicated they will offer the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines for this age group. Both vaccines recently received authorization from the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Initial sites will include private health care providers, local health departments and some hospitals and pharmacies.
The Harrison County Health Dept. offers COVID-19 vaccinations on Mondays and will offer vaccine to those 6 months of age to 5 years old as the vaccine becomes available. Appointments will be required.
To make an appointment, go to www.ourshot.in.gov or call the Harrison County Health Dept. at 812-738-3237, Option 1 or 2.
