COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Information

The FDA and CDC have authorized the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children 5-11. Appointments are required only for children 5-11 years of age to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at our Vaccine Center at Wonderland of the Americas. People 12 and older do not need an appointment and can walk-in to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

An adult family member or guardian must accompany the child to provide written consent for the vaccination. Proof of age is required.

Getting Ready for Your Appointment

Please arrive no more than 15 minutes early for your appointment. Be sure to bring a photo ID and a mask or face-covering.  

At the time of vaccination, you will receive a card with information about the vaccine you received. This information is recorded in the state immunization registry, so you can be sure you will receive the correct second dose. You will also receive an appointment for your second dose before you leave.

If you have questions, please visit our FAQ page.

What to Expect After Your Vaccination

Side effects of a COVID-19 vaccination can be fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and pain or swelling in the arm where you got your shot. These are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects can be worse after the 2nd dose but, usually resolve in a few days. Consult with your doctor about taking any over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help with these symptoms or if you are still experiencing side effects after a few days.

Even after vaccination it’s important to keep using a mask or face-covering and keeping your distance when around others outside your home, and washing your hands often to help stop the spread of COVID-19 as we continue to learn more about immunity and protection provided by these vaccines.
