Publix says No Thanks. Will Not Offer COVID-19 Vaccine to Children Under 5
The Food and Drug Administration approved Moderna and Pfizer shots for children 6 months to 5 years. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended them for the age group.
Publix did not give a reason for not offering the vaccine to young children.
For children 6 months and up, that are eligible to get the flu shot, Publix does provide them.
Also, Appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 and up are available on the Publix website. https://www.publix.com/pharmacy
Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo is not recommending the shots for kids under 5, if they are healthy children.
