Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

COVID Vaccine FAQs for Pediatricians

Children’s National Hospital and HSC are currently administering Pfizer vaccine to patients who are residents of Washington, D.C., and Prince George’s County, Maryland. The minimum age to receive Pfizer is 16 years old.

Children’s National and HSC inpatients who meet age requirements will also be provided the Pfizer vaccine when it’s considered appropriate for them by the medical team.

D.C. residents age 16-17 who are not patients of Children’s National will be added to an invitation waitlist by accessing the DC Vaccine Portal. Currently, there is no vaccine available for children under 16 years old.

Children’s National COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Waitlist

If you have a Prince George’s County or D.C. patient who has been seen at CNH or HSC and they have not received an invitation for vaccination from us, and you believe they meet all the criteria, please contact your physician liaison to add your patient to the Children's National COVID Vaccine Waitlist.
