Our kids vaccination clinic is low stress!
COVID-19 vaccinations are now available for children age 5-17. To register your child(ren) for an appointment, you may click here or click on the green REQUEST A VACCINATION button below. Our pediatric vaccination clinic is located at 245 Fountain Court, off Man O' War Boulevard in Lexington. The location is easy-access and offers plenty of free surface parking, and we've made every effort to make the experience low-stress for kids. The clinic is open 1-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturdays. (Appointments for adults are available at this location Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-noon. See other adult locations below.) You may register up to five children for one appointment. Invitations to make an appointment for your child(ren) will be sent to you via email as appointments are available. Please note that a parent or legal guardian must accompany all children to the appointment.
Adults (age 18 and over)
Booster shots are now available and encouraged for all adults in the United States who previously received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. (Note that we no longer offer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine; those who received this vaccine and wish to have a booster may choose one of the other vaccines.)
People age 18 and over may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, while others may prefer to get a different booster. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Adolescents age 16 and 17
Boosters are now approved for people age 16 and 17. Only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is authorized for these ages. At least six months must have elapsed since the completion of the primary two-shot vaccination series. PLEASE NOTE THAT A PARENT OR GUARDIAN MUST ACCOMPANY ALL MINORS TO THE VACCINATION APPOINTMENT.
To register for a booster appointment
Anyone who wishes to receive a booster should register for an appointment using the green REQUEST A VACCINATION button above. You must bring your CDC vaccination card or proof of vaccination to the appointment. (Lost your card? Request a copy.) Note that replacement cards cannot be issued at the booster appointment.
