(WGHP) — Children between the ages of 5 and 11 can now get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, but it’s not available everywhere yet.

To help families find a vaccination site for their kids, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has put together a map tool.

NCDHHS says vaccines are being delivered to the state on a rolling basis, and the map will be updated as new shipments are processed.

The state recommends calling ahead to confirm that the vaccine is available.

Doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are different for kids, and only the Pfizer Bio-NTech vaccine has been authorized,” NCDHHS said. “Not every adult vaccine location may have these at first.”
