OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Following approval by the CDC and the FDA, the Oklahoma City-County Health Department says it is prepared to start administering COVID-19 vaccines to children.

Children age 5-years-old and older are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine for children.

Officials say if families begin the vaccination series now, their child could be fully vaccinated by mid-December.

OCCHD will offer vaccines through regular clinic appointments beginning on Monday and extended-hour clinics.
