TWIN FALLS, Idaho — St. Luke’s announced it will begin scheduling vaccine boosters for 12- to 15-year-olds and moderately or severely immunocompromised 5- to 11-year-olds.
This comes after the Center for Disease Control’s recent approval to expand approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster to these groups.
"We will start scheduling Pfizer boosters for the 12 to 15 age group today and start administering those tomorrow… Those are recommended five months after a primary series with an mRNA vaccine," said Dr. Jim Souza, St. Luke’s Chief Physician Executive.
Scheduling for eligible children will open 7 p.m. Jan. 17. To schedule an appointment, visit St. Luke’s website.
