CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today recommended the Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine be given to children ages 5 to 11, an important step toward full approval. Full approval is required before this age group can be vaccinated.

Upon CDC and Texas Department of State Health Services approval, expected later this week, vaccinations for children will be available at no cost with parental consent at all City-County Public Health District vaccination clinics, including the vaccine site at La Palmera Mall (former Charming Charlie store) during regular mall hours (Monday-Saturday: 10 a.m.–9 p.m., Sunday: 11 a.m.–6 p.m.)
