Detroit Mayor Duggan says COVID-19 vaccines will soon be available for children 12 and older

Mike Duggan shared Wednesday that the city will soon be providing COVID-19 vaccines to some children.

Duggan said the vaccine will be available for anyone 12 and older once the CDC approves the vaccine for that age group. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded emergency use authorization for Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine in the United States for children ages 12 to 15 on Monday.

Children will be able to get the vaccine at any sire offering the Pfizer shot. A parent or legal guardian must be present with children who are getting vaccinated.

Duggan added that the Good Neighbor $50 incentive will not be provided to people who bring children to get vaccines.
