With COVID-19 vaccine availability and eligibility now including individuals 5 and older, Children’s of Alabama (Children’s) is one of more than 100 pediatric hospitals across the U.S. administering the vaccine through the end of the year. As of Nov. 10, the UAB Pediatric Primary Care Clinic at Children’s of Alabama will administer the vaccine to children and adolescents ages 5-18 on a limited, appointment-only basis, and parental consent is required. The clinic is not a mass vaccination site.
Children’s recommends vaccination for everyone eligible. If possible, children should be vaccinated at their primary care physician’s (PCP) office, a local pharmacy or community vaccination site. The Children’s COVID vaccination clinic is available for children who do not have a PCP or ready access to a community site.
Children’s is now providing vaccinations to qualified patients only in some of our outpatient clinics, designated primary care practices throughout the Birmingham area, and for inpatients as ordered by a physician. The UAB Pediatric Primary Care Clinic is the only Children’s site offering vaccinations to qualified children and adolescents who are not our patients.
While Children’s of Alabama (hospital) is not a mass vaccination site, eligible individuals may also receive the vaccine at any community site.
