Health Department boosters for ages 12-15

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Hamilton County Health Department is offering the Pfizer Covid booster for young teens next week, even if they don’t have all the protocols just yet.

They will begin offering the boosters for ages 12-15 beginning on Tuesday.

But they are still waiting on guidance from the state on the details.

The Health Department expects to get that guidance on Monday.

In the meantime, they encourage parents to visit your pharmacy or healthcare provider if you don’t want to wait until Tuesday.

The age group is allowed to get the booster now if it has been at least 5 months since they got their second shot.

Please visit vaccine.hamiltontn.gov or call the Health Department’s COVID-19 hotline at 423-209-8383 if you have questions.
