Pfizer Boosters for Ages 12 and Over Available Now

Español: El CDC alienta a todas las personas mayores de 12 años a recibir una vacuna Pfizer de refuerzo.

2022-01-06: We are happy to announce that VaxTogetherAustin is now offering boosters and third doses of the Pfizer vaccine to teenagers and children, following FDA and CDC announcements.

The FDA and CDC have approved the following changes:

  • Reduced the interval between the second dose and the booster dose, from 6 months to 5 months
  • Authorized a booster for children over 12 years
  • Authorized a third dose for children 5-11 years with certain conditions

Your child is eligible for a booster if:

  • It has been at least 5 months since your child’s 2nd dose, and
  • They are over 12 years of age.

If your child has been diagnosed with certain conditions that mean they are immunocompromised, they are eligible for a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine. This is considered the third dose in the primary series, rather than a booster. The FDA and CDC have determined that a third dose will allow immunocompromised children to receive the most potential benefit from vaccination.

Your child is eligible for a third dose if:

  • It has been at least 28 days since your child’s second dose, 
  • They are at least  5 years of age, and
  • They are immunocompromised to a moderate or severe degree.

2022-01-06: Nos complace anunciar que VaxTogetherAustin ahora ofrece refuerzos y terceras dosis de la vacuna Pfizer para adolescentes y niños, siguiendo los anuncios de la FDA y los CDC.

La FDA y los CDC han aprobado los siguientes cambios:

  • Reducción del intervalo entre la segunda dosis y la dosis de refuerzo, de 6 meses a 5 meses.
  • Autoriza un refuerzo para niños mayores de 12 años.
  • Autoriza una tercera dosis para niños de 5 a 11 años con determinadas afecciones.

Su hijo es elegible para un refuerzo si:

  • Son mayores de 12 años.

Si su hijo ha sido diagnosticado con ciertas afecciones que significan que está inmunodeprimido, es elegible para una tercera dosis de la vacuna Pfizer. Esta se considera la tercera dosis de la serie primaria, en lugar de un refuerzo. La FDA y los CDC han determinado que una tercera dosis permitirá que los niños inmunodeprimidos reciban el mayor beneficio potencial de la vacunación.

Su hijo es elegible para una tercera dosis si:

  • Han pasado al menos 28 días desde la segunda dosis de su hijo,
  • Tiene al menos 5 años de edad, y

“We are excited that so many young Texans are getting vaccinated to enjoy a great Austin festival,” said Kanaka Sathasivan, MPH, board member of TogetherAustin. “We’ve already seen the huge impact vaccination can have on protecting health and wellbeing in the community. We will continue to be available to help provide opportunities for every Central Texan to get vaccinated.”

“Soccer, at its core, is about community,” said Austin FC President Andy Loughnane. “We are proud to align with TogetherAustin and Austin City Limits Music Festival to increase vaccinations across our community by inviting eligible participants to visit Q2 Stadium for this uniquely-Austin opportunity.”
