Pfizer Approved for Children Ages 5 to 11

Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available for children ages 5 to 11. We will have a limited supply during the first few weeks of November, which is expected to increase over the next few weeks. Due to the very limited supply, we will  require appointments for vaccinations for ages 5 to 11 at SamCare Express locations. Scheduling by phone is not an option. Appointment only, walk ins are not able to be accommodated at this time.

Many county vaccination events will also offer the vaccine for this age group, and Samaritan primary care clinics and pharmacies will offer them in the coming weeks.

Read this Pfizer vaccine information fact sheet to learn more about the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine for children 5 to 11 years of age.

SamCare Express also has COVID-19 vaccinations available for ages 12 and older (including booster doses) for appointment only. 

Who Is Eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine

All Oregonians, age 12 and older, are now eligible for a vaccination.

  • The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for ages 18 and older.
  • Only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for youths ages 12 to 17, and a child must be 12 at the time of vaccination.
  • Parental consent is needed for children under the age of 15 at Samaritan clinics.

Patients under 15 who are not accompanied by a parent or guardian, must bring a signed form with them. Forms are available in four languages: EnglishEspanolArabic and Chinese.

How Many Doses of Each Vaccine

  • Pfizer: Two-dose series, 21 days apart.

  • Moderna: Two-dose series, 28 days apart.

  • Johnson & Johnson: One dose vaccination. 

Booster Doses Recommended for All Three Vaccines

Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccine boosters are now authorized by the Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Oregon Health Authority, for everyone age 18 and older. These national and state health agencies have also authorized “mixing and matching” of the three vaccine brands for boosters, meaning a person may get a booster dose of a different vaccine than they originally received. 

Third Doses for Immunocompromised

The CDC and FDA have authorized a third dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for moderate or severely immunocompromised patients, given at least 28 days after their second dose. Read more about this here.

Other Vaccination Opportunities

Several retail pharmacies throughout Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties are offering COVID-19 vaccinations as well.

Vaccine Safety

How do we know the coronavirus vaccines are safe? The coronavirus vaccines went through very large, rigorous clinical trials.

The clinical trials included up to 40,000 people, which is more than double the size of most vaccine clinical trials. That allowed the pharmaceutical companies to go through the required testing steps in a very short time.

The vaccines have been shown to be safe and very effective at preventing COVID-19 infection, and nearly 100% effective in preventing hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.

How You Can Help!

Volunteers are essential to our ability to offer mass vaccination events in our communities. Volunteers are needed to help check people in, administer vaccine, observe individuals following vaccination as well as parking and crowd control.

If you’re interested in partnering with Samaritan to provide top-quality patient care, Samaritan Foundations would be honored to work with you on a gift to your local hospital.

Let us know if you have any questions.
