NEW BEDFORD, MA. (WLNE)- Pfizer vaccine clinics at Southcoast Health are now open to children 12 and older, the organization announced Thursday.

The announcement follows the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization of the vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds earlier this week. Southcoast Health says children receiving the shot will need to have a parent or guardian bring in a signed consent form, or sign one at the clinic.

Individuals looking to get the vaccine do not need to have a primary care provider at Southcoast Health.

“Getting your shot is more convenient and more important than ever,” said Tonya Johnson, RN, Vice President of Operations for Southcoast Hospitals Group.

“All available vaccines are safe and effective. They’re our best chance at conquering COVID-19 once and for all.”
