The Dix Hills Fire Department will host a Covid-19 vaccination site for children Wednesday.
The site, at 115 East Deer Park Road, will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine from 2-7 p.m. for children 5 and up.
It is one of 17 new #VaxForKids pop-up vaccination sites designed to increase vaccination rates among children and adolescents.
“Vaccinating our children – and ensuring they stay up-to-date with all recommended vaccine doses – means they will have the best protection possible against COVID-19,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “That’s why the best pediatricians across our nation and within our state recommend children five and older get vaccinated as soon as possible. Together with partners in communities on-the-ground, our #VaxForKids sites make getting vaccinated accessible and convenient for New York parents, guardians and families.”
The COVID-19 vaccine is free.
