Hospital Plans Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic
Nantucket Current •
Nantucket Cottage Hospital is hosting a pediatric COVID-19 vaccine clinic this Saturday. The town is also preparing to host a series of all-ages COVID-19 vaccine clinics. Here are the details:
Nantucket Cottage Hospital
Nantucket Cottage Hospital is offering a pediatric only COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 16th, in the hospital’s primary care clinic for children between 6-months old and 5-years old.
Once a parent or guardian signs up their child for the first dose, they will be scheduled for a second dose six weeks later and a third dose eight weeks following the second. Although patients have the opportunity to receive all three doses at NCH, if the child has already started the Pfizer series, parents may bring their child’s vaccine card to the clinic to receive their second or third dose. A new card will be provided for patients receiving their first vaccine at NCH.
- July 16 – Pfizer 1st Dose
- August 27 – Pfizer 2nd Dose
- October 22 – Pfizer 3rd Dose
Appointments for NCH’s pediatric COVID-19 vaccination clinic can be made by calling (508) 825-1000. Patients must be registered with Mass General Brigham before receiving their pediatric vaccine. To register, please call (866) 211-6588. If you have received care at Nantucket Cottage Hospital or another MGB facility in the past you are already registered.
