RCAM Pauses Its COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, RCAM is unable to staff any new COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics. We therefore have suspended giving any more COVID-19 vaccine.

We still enthusiastically endorse all eligible children to be protected from COVID-19.

See below for other options for getting your child their COVID vaccination.



Other Options for COVID Vaccination

The ACIP has Recommended COVID Vaccine for Children 5 to 11 years old.

Most pediatricians follow the recommendation of the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) about who should get vaccine.

That committee met Tuesday, November 2, 2021 and voted overwhelmingly to recommend COVID vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old.

In a related note, RCAM Also Recommends COVID Vaccine for Children 5 to 11 Years Old

The pediatricians at RCAM (as well as pediatricians pretty much every where else) enthusiastically endorse this new recommendation for the COVID vaccine.
