SHELBY COUNTY, TN – The Shelby County Health Department (SCHD) will offer special extended hours from 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for COVID-19 vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 at its Immunization Clinic at 814 Jefferson Avenue several days per week during the month of November.
The Immunization Clinic will accept children and their parents on a walk-in basis until 7:30 p.m. in the evenings on the following dates:
Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian with documentation of child’s birth date (birth certificate or shot record is accepted). Parents/guardians who have not yet been vaccinated may also receive a vaccination when the child does.
“SCHD vaccinated 126 children on November 4, 2021, the first day the vaccinations were offered for the 5-to-11-year age range here in Shelby County,” said Dr. Michelle Taylor, Director of the Shelby County Health Department. “We were pleased by the turn out and hope many more parents will take advantage of our extended clinic hours in order to get their children vaccinated after school and work.”
Vaccinations for children will not be administered at the drive-thru vaccination sites, including the Pipkin Building and the Germantown Baptist Church vaccination site, but will be available at many pharmacies. To find a vaccination site near you, go to Vaccines.gov and enter your zip code.
