Pediatric COVID Vaccines for Children 5-11

On Tuesday, November 2, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended the Pfizer COVID vaccine for children who are 5-11 years old. Effective Monday, November 8, Pfizer COVID vaccines will be available for this age group at Nash UNC’s COVID Vaccine Walk-In Clinic at Nash Day Hospital. Vaccines are free and do not require insurance or a photo ID.

The current hours of operation for Nash UNC’s Vaccine Clinic are Monday-Friday from 8 am – 4 pm. In an effort to better accommodate children who need to receive their vaccine outside of traditional school hours, the clinic will offer extended hours on Thursdays from 8 am until 6 pm. To help with the initial influx of pediatric patients, Thursday, November 11 will be dedicated to pediatric vaccines and scheduling an appointment is strongly recommended.

Those who have questions or would like to make an appointment for a specific time, schedule a homebound visit, or coordinate a community vaccine event, can call Nash UNC's Community Vaccination Line at (252) 962-8624. 

Please note: Pediatric vaccine supply may be limited initially due to federal distribution. Nash UNC will be closely monitoring supply, and if we see that we are close to running low and do not have confirmation of our next shipment of pediatric doses, we will communicate via local media and Nash UNC’s Facebook page.

Scheduling Your Vaccine Appointment with Nash UNC Health Care

To help community members schedule a vaccine appointment, Nash UNC Health Care created a phone line for the various vaccination clinics we are partnering with or hosting in the community.

To schedule a vaccination appointment at one of the community vaccine clinics (locations vary from week to week), community members are asked to call Nash UNC's Community Vaccination Line at 252-962-8624 and follow the directions below.

  • Leave a voicemail with your full name, date of birth, and best contact number.

If you are unsure of the current clinic locations and vaccination opportunities, or if you are homebound and unable to travel to a vaccination clinic, please note this in your message and a Nash UNC team member will call you to discuss vaccination options.
  • A member of the Nash UNC vaccine scheduling team will call you back as soon as possible, often during normal business hours, to schedule your appointment.
