On September 24, 2021, the FDA and CDC approved the Pfizer COVID-19 Booster dose to be administered six months after completion of a Pfizer series for specific populations. One of the populations approved for the Pfizer Booster shot at this time is people age 18-64 years at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational setting. Education staff (teachers, support staff, daycare workers) are included in that category. Please visit the OCHD COVID-19 Vaccine Hub to see if you may be eligible for a booster dose.
On November 3, 2021, the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine received emergency use authorization for individuals 5 - 11 years from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and was recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on November 2. For those interested, community partners will be hosting COVID-19 vaccine clinics across the Birmingham Public School district for all eligible students, staff and community members who have not yet received a COVID-19 vaccine. Details about vaccine clinics will be released in the coming weeks via the district ENews.
