COVID-19 Vaccines for Children

COVID Vaccines for kids feature

The COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine has been approved for use in children from 5 years of age.

More information, including Frequently Asked Questions, is available on the SA Health website at www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/covidvaccinechildren.

Family-friendly vaccination clinics

The Women’s and Children’s Health Network runs two family-friendly vaccination clinics at Enfield and North Adelaide.

These clinics are staffed by paediatric nurses and use a range of distraction techniques to support your child to be a vaccination superhero, including our popular virtual reality goggles!

Speak with the staff on arrival if your child needs any extra support – there is no need to book distraction tools in advance.

More information, including opening hours and how to book, can be found on the SA Health website.

The North Adelaide Vaccination clinic has moved from the Women’s and Children’s Hospital to 77 King William Road, North Adelaide.

My child has a medical condition – what do I do?
