12-14 year-olds must be accompanied by either a parent, guardian or someone designated by the parent. If someone other than a parent or guardian accompanies the 12-14 year old, they will need to provide proof of parental or guardian consent. Proof of consent is either:

  • A signed consent form (download)

  • A written or typed note that includes the parent/guardians name, relationship to the young adult, their date of birth, a statement saying they consent to young adult being vaccinated and the parent/guardian signature.

Q. What ages is the COVID-19 vaccine approved for?

Children aged 12 and older.

As of May 12th the Pfizer vaccine is approved down to age 12 under an FDA Emergency Use Authorization, with strong approval from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. We expect the same will happen with the Moderna vaccine soon, as the initial results from their trials on adolescents are also promising.

 

Trials are ongoing for children ages 6 months to 11 years.

Q. Do your physicians recommend the COVID-19 vaccine for children and teens?

Yes, yes, YES! The vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective, and 12-15 year olds get an even better antibody response from the vaccine, with similar side effects (arm pain, fever) compared to adults. Vaccinating our children will go a long way towards slowing down the pandemic, protecting vulnerable people who can't get vaccines, and protecting the youths who get the vaccine.

All of the pediatricians at East Portland Pediatrics fully support administration of COVID vaccine to children, and we have been and will continue to vaccinate our own children as soon as they are eligible!

Q. Can we get the vaccine at your office?

We have applied and been approved as COVID-19 vaccine providers. Since there currently is abundant supply at multiple locations, we have chosen to postpone administering the vaccine here until it is approved for under age 12, or the situation changes. We want to be good stewards of vaccine supply and not contribute to vaccine waste.

For now, the best place to start looking for vaccine appointments is the COVID-19 Vaccine in Oregon website. There you can find links to schedule appointments at mass vaccination sites, county vaccine sites, and pharmacies.

Q. What if my child needs other vaccines at the same time?

On May 12, 2021the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices removed the two week window between the COVID vaccine and other vaccines. COVID-19 vaccines can now be given at the same time or within days of other, routine vaccines. This is great news because it means we no longer have to postpone other important vaccines when getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Stay tuned. We will continue to update this page with vaccination opportunities, and answers to your COVID-19 vaccine questions!
