The CDC suggests these steps to help prepare
for your child’s vaccination visit:
  • Get tips for how to support your child before, during, and after the visit.
  • Your child will need a second shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine 3 weeks after their first shot.
  • Talk to your child before the visit about what to expect.
  • Tell the doctor or nurse if your child has any allergies to any ingredient in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
  • Comfort your child during the appointment.
  • To prevent fainting and injuries related to fainting, your child should be seated or lying down during vaccination and for 15 minutes after the vaccine is given.
  • After your child’s COVID-19 vaccination, you will be asked to stay for 15–30 minutes so your child can be observed in case they have a severe allergic reaction and need immediate treatment.

MCH fully endorses the CDC's guideline and
urges parents to vaccinate their children.

Please Note:
For the safety of our patients, visitors and employees, everyone entering MCH's campus or off-site Practices will continue to be required to wear a face mask.
