Vaccination

 

COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 6 months to 5 years old are now available. 

The Food and Drug Administration has authorized lower doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children in this age group. 

Children may receive the Pfizer vaccine or the Moderna vaccines. Children 6 months through 4 years old are eligible to receive three doses of the Pfizer vaccine given three weeks apart followed by a third dose at least two months later. Children ages 6 months to five years old are eligible to receive two doses of the Moderna vaccines, given 28 days apart.


 

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has announced all children and adults (age 6 months and up) are eligible to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Stay Up to Date with Your Vaccines

CDC recommends that people remain up to date with their vaccines, which includes additional doses for individuals who are immunocompromised or booster doses at regular time points. Individuals who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should get an additional primary shot and a booster shot.

Visit the CDC website to learn more about which vaccines you need to stay up to date.

Vaccines are free to everyone. No insurance or ID cards are required.

Some Medicaid Prepaid Health Plans offer monetary incentives for members who receive their COVID-19 vaccines.

Booster Doses and Additional Doses for Immunocompromised Individuals


    To strengthen and extend protections against COVID-19, boosters are now available to all North Carolinians 5 and older. Although we don’t have all the answers on the Omicron variant, initial data suggests that COVID-19 boosters help broaden and strengthen the protection against Omicron and other variants

    Everyone ages 5 years and older should get 1 booster shot after completing their COVID-19 vaccine primary series. Learn more about when you should get your 1st booster. 

    Recommended 2 Boosters 

    • Adults ages 50 years and older 
    • People ages 12 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised 
    Learn more about when you should get your 2nd booster. 

     

    Adults 18 and older may receive any brand of COVID-19 vaccine for your booster shot. However, it is recommended that people get boosted with a mRNA vaccine – Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech, instead of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, unless they have a medical reason as to why they cannot receive an mRNA vaccine. Speak with a doctor, nurse or pharmacist if you have questions about what booster is right for you.

    Immunocompromised Individuals
    People who are immunocompromised are especially vulnerable to COVID-19. Everyone, including immunocompromised people, should receive a COVID-19 vaccine primary series if they are 5 years and older as soon as possible.

    After completing the primary series, some moderately or severely immunocompromised people should get an additional primary shot and a booster shot.

    Treatment of COVID-19

    IF YOU’RE SICK WITH COVID, GET TREATMENT FAST. Treatments must be given as soon as you feel sick and can only be prescribed by a medical professional. Get tested and treated in one visit at a one-stop Test to Treat site, even if you don't have insurance. You may be charged for testing and evaluation. Treatment of COVID-19 is not a substitute for vaccinations. Treatments may decrease the risk of severe disease, hospitalization and death but they will not prevent infection.

    If you’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19 recently and are at high risk for severe disease because you are unvaccinated or immunocompromised, talk to your doctor about treatment or call 1-877-332-6585 (English) or 1-877-366-0310 (Spanish).

    Visit the NC DHHS website for more information. Treatment options currently authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA include Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs) and antiviral pills for treatment of COVID-19.




     

    Minor Consent

    A North Carolina State law changed on August 20, 2021 that now requires health care providers to obtain written consent from a parent or legal guardian of a minor prior to administration of any vaccine that that has been granted emergency use authorization and is not yet fully approved by the FDA to an individual under 18 years of age.

    Once a vaccine has full FDA approval, pre-existing minor consent laws apply to consent to vaccination.

    *Minors 5-17 may receive a third additional dose if they are immunocompromised. Only Pfizer booster doses are approved for those that are 5-11.
