Davis County, Utah – Starting from Monday, November 8, the Davis County Health Department (DCHD) will be offering COVID-19 vaccinations to children ages 5 to 11.

On the week of November 8, the clinic is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Legacy Events Center in Farmington will be offering vaccinations via drive-thru. During the week of November 15, the clinic will be open during its regular schedule running Monday to Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

If you need assistance in scheduling or have any general questions, call (801) 525-4900.

Starting November 8, Intermountain Healthcare also started offering the COVID-19 vaccine to kids aged 5 and up.

“With this vaccine, kids can go back to something that’s better than being locked at home on remote schooling, not being able to see their friends,” said Dr. Kawsar Talaat of Johns Hopkins University. “The vaccine will protect them and also protect our communities.”

According to federal tracking, nearly 70% of 5 to 11-year-olds hospitalized for COVID-19 in the U.S. have other serious medical conditions, including asthma and obesity.

Pfizer plans to begin shipping millions of vials of the pediatric vaccine — in orange caps to avoid mix-ups with the purple-capped doses for everyone else — to doctors’ offices, pharmacies, and other vaccination sites.
