MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Beginning Thursday, Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines will begin to be offered to children 12 and older with parental permission at select schools in Miami-Dade County.

Employees and parents of M-DCPS and charter school students wishing to be vaccinated may also receive the vaccine at any of the participating locations.

“When we vaccinate teachers, school staff, families, and young people, our schools can get back to normal and we can all get back to doing the things we love, with the people we love,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said in a statement Wednesday. “With today’s CDC approval, we will also begin administering vaccines to adolescents 12-15 with parental consent and we’re thrilled to partner with M-DCPS to get the vaccine directly to more families.”

The vaccine will be offered Thursday, May 13, and Thursday, May 20, from noon to 8 p.m. at the following locations:
