SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 8, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Hogle Zoo will host a pediatric vaccination event with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Utah State Health Department, and Nomi Health, it announced Monday.
The two-day event is set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 12 and 13. The first dose of the two-dose primary series of the FDA authorized COVID-19 Pfizer-BioTech vaccine will be offered to children 5 to 11 years old. Zoo admission is not included in the event.
Parental or legal guardian consent is required for this age group, and children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Immunizers will be at Hogle Zoo to conduct the vaccination process, provide guidance through the process and administer vaccines.
