11-05-21: COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Announced for Children Ages 5-11

RCHD Free COVID-19 Testing

(RILEY COUNTY, KS – November 5, 2021) In light of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director signing off on administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 5-11 the Riley County Health Department will be holding a clinic on November 13th. 

The clinic will be from 11am - 4pm at the Riley County Health Department Family & Child Resource Center (FCRC) at 2101 Claflin Road, Manhattan, KS. While the vaccine is free for everyone, if you have insurance please bring your insurance card so we can bill your insurance company. If you do not have insurance, do not worry, there is no charge. 

Those interested in making an appointment for their child will need to sign-up for an appointment by visiting https://rileyco-1113.rsvpify.com/

COVID-19 vaccines have undergone – and will continue to undergo – the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. Vaccinating children will help protect them from getting COVID-19 and therefore reducing their risk of severe disease, hospitalizations, or developing long-term COVID-19 complications. Getting your children vaccinated can help protect them against COVID-19, as well as reduce disruptions to in-person learning and activities by helping curb community transmission. 

The clinic is ONLY open to those between the ages of 5-11. All children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Due to space issues we ask that only one parent or guardian come with their child/ children. 

Due to Kansas State having a scheduled football game on November 13th both parking lots at the FCRC will be reserved for those receiving vaccines. We also suggest you use the suggested route below to avoid any potential game day traffic.
