Local Covid Vaccination Site Updates

Feb. 4, 2021.  Vaccine manufacturer Pfizer has recently announced that they are ready to seek EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) for their Covid vaccine for young children ages 6 months through 4 years old  npr article: Covid Vaccines Approval Process for Young Children.  As with all medical and health considerations, parents are encouraged to discuss this vaccine with the child's Primary Health Care Provider.  Our friends at Northampton Area Pediatrics have recently posted a local update about their plans to offer mini-vaccine clinics here.

Also, the Northampton Health Dept. recently announced that walk-in Covid Vaccine Clinics are now available at the Elks Lodge on a regular basis with different vaccine doses available for anyone ages 5 and up.  See the NHD Covid Vaccine Site for more information.

Finally, the Northampton Health Dept. and the Hatfield Board of Health are eliciting interest in hosting additional Covid Vaccine clinics for children ages 5-11 at Hatfield Elementary School.  Please complete this brief survey if interested in scheduling over Feb. vacation break.
