“The CDC has released their recommendation that children between the ages of 5 and 11 years can begin receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine,” Nomi Health Medical Director Dr. June Steely said. “Nomi Health staff have been trained to accommodate pediatric patients, as we extend our track record of keeping Utahns safe and keeping schools, workplaces, and communities open.”

On Wednesday, the CDC recommended the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for ages 5 to 11, after data shows it is safe and effective for preventing severe illness from COVID-19. The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of the vaccine after reviewing data from Pfizer trials that found the vaccine had no serious side effects for younger kids.

No appointment is necessary for any of the locations. Vaccinations are on a first-come-first-served basis. Nomi says average wait times are 1-3 minutes. Pre-registration is also not necessary but they recommend it to ensure a quicker experience.
