Omaha Pediatrician Looking Forward To Rolling Out COVID-19 Vaccine to Kids

Published: Nov. 3, 2021

Vaccine advisers for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have voted to recommend the Pfizer vaccine for kids ages five to eleven.

Dr. Natalie Fleming, a pediatrician with Methodist Physicians Clinic, says they're ready to hit the ground running.

She says the vaccines could be ready as soon as next week, depending on when the state distributes them.

"If you have hesitancy about giving your child the COVID-19 vaccine, if you have questions, reach out to your pediatrician. We are happy to answer those. I encourage people to leave scientific talk to those who have done the research,” Dr. Fleming said.
