Pediatric Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines are now approved for use in Oregon for children ages 6 months and older.
A two-dose Moderna vaccine series is available to children ages 6 months to under 6 years old. A three-dose Pfizer vaccination series is available to children ages 6 months to under 5 years old.
The Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup has confirmed that both vaccines are safe and effective for these age groups, following authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and recommendation from the CDC.
The Oregon Health Authority is working with vaccine providers statewide to make doses available at health care provider offices, federally qualified health centers and special COVID-19 vaccine clinics.
