About 650 children 5 years through 6 months old were scheduled to receive their first doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland. Children were greeted by music, toys, bubbles and friendly OHSU Dl staff as they arrived at the vaccination clinic. After receiving their vaccinations, children received stickers, hugs and cheers.
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for children as young as 6 months old were recently granted emergency use authorizations, and are recommended by the Federal Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup.
