COVID-19 Vaccines at Seattle Children’s

Seattle Children’s is providing COVID-19 vaccination services to all members of our community, and our patients and their caregivers.

Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccines

We offer the Pfizer BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 vaccines at our Seattle main campus, Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic (OBCC) Othello, and Federal Way South Clinic locations. These vaccines are:

  • Approved for children 6 months to 4 years old for first, second, and third doses under an Emergency Authorization
  • Approved for people 5 to 15 years old for first and second doses under an Emergency Use Authorization. FDA approved for people 12 years and older for first and second doses (the vaccine has been renamed to “Comirnaty” for this age group)
  • Approved for people 5 years and older who have a health condition or are undergoing a treatment that makes them moderately to severely immunocompromised for a third dose under an Emergency Use Authorization. Note: You will not be required to show proof of medical condition at the time of the vaccination.
  • Approved for people 5 years and older for a first booster dose under an Emergency Use Authorization
  • Approved for people 50 years and older, 18 years and older if received Janssen for first dose and first booster, or those 12 years and older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised for a second booster dose under an Emergency Use Authorization.

    Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines

    We offer the Moderna mNRA COVID-19 vaccine at our hospital main campus and Federal Way South Clinic locations (and not at OBCC). This vaccine is:

    • Approved for children 6 months to 5 years old for first and second doses under an Emergency Authorization.
    • Approved for children 6 months to 5 years old who have a health condition or are undergoing a treatment that makes them moderately to severely immunocompromised for a third dose under an Emergency Authorization. Note: You will not be required to show proof of medical condition at the time of the vaccination.
    • 6 months to 5 years old is the only age group for which we carry the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. We do not have any Moderna vaccines available for 6 years and above.
      • If your child turns 6 years old between their first and second doses, the CDC recommends that the second dose be the Moderna vaccine developed for children 6-11 years old.
      • You will need to cancel your appointment at Seattle Children’s and schedule a second dose at an alternate site.

    Second and Third Doses

    • Patients require second and third doses of the COVID-19 vaccines as part of the primary series depending upon their age and type of vaccine for the first dose.
    • If you received your first dose at Seattle Children’s, your second dose is automatically scheduled for you at the applicable interval.
    • If your child (age 6 month-4 years old) received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at Seattle Children’s, their third dose is automatically scheduled for them at the applicable interval.
    • If you or your child received your first dose or second dose of the primary series at another facility or pharmacy, please email COVIDCommunitySupport@seattlechildrens.org and we will assist you to schedule an appointment with us.

    Prior to Scheduling Your Appointment

    • Confirm it is the right time to receive the vaccine:
      • Talk to your primary healthcare provider about any questions or concerns related to the vaccine and your medical needs.
    • Make sure that you are well enough:
      • You will not be provided the vaccine if you are in the 10 days exposure/quarantine timeframe, which is
        • Within 6 feet of another individual with known or suspected COVID-19 illness without a mask and eye protection for 15 minutes or greater
    • You will not be provided the vaccine if you are in the 10 days isolation timeframe with the COVID-19 illness, which is:
      • 10 days since a positive COVID-19 test or onset of symptoms
    • At the time of your vaccine, we will also ask some screening questions to confirm this is the right time for you or your child to receive the vaccine. The vaccine clinical team will not be able to advise you if any underlying health conditions could stop you from receiving the vaccine or should be considered before you receive it.
