HOUSTON – The office of Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo announced Wednesday that children 12 years of age or older can receive their Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine starting on Thursday at NRG Park.
Adolescents must have parental consent to receive the vaccine before arriving. The vaccine will be available from noon to 9 p.m. daily.
Hidalgo tweeted Thursday asking parents to get their children vaccinated in Harris County.
I really don’t want to have to get on TikTok and make relevant videos to convince tweens to get vaccinated. But I will. Save me the embarrassment.— Lina Hidalgo (@LinaHidalgoTX) May 13, 2021
Parents: Tell them that you care without actually telling them that you care. Get your kids vaccinated.
This announcement comes after U.S. health advisers endorsed the use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in kids as young as 12 on Wednesday.
NEW: Starting tomorrow 5/13, any child 12 or older with parental consent can receive their Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at NRG Park, Gate 16. Come on down Noon-9pm daily.— Office of Judge Lina Hidalgo (@HarrisCoJudge) May 12, 2021
