TYLER, Texas — NET Health will begin to offer the two-dose Pfizer vaccination for 12 to 15-year-olds at their clinics at Harvey Hall Convention Center in Tyler. The clinics are held Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. 

“Parents who bring their child(ren) to receive the Pfizer vaccine are asked to first make an appointment by visiting NETHealthCOVID19.org and selecting the 'Get Vaccinated' link,” says George Roberts, NET Health CEO. “On this webpage, you can select an available appointment time for you and for your child(ren) to receive a COVID vaccine.”

The FDA authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine on 12 to 15-year-olds on May 10. Now, some summer activities for kids and teens are requiring proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. 

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent or guardian when attending a vaccination clinic.

Roberts also wants to remind East Texans there is no cost or fee to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

If a child has health insurance such as Medicaid or is listed as a dependent on their parent’s health insurance, NET Health asks that you bring the health insurance card on the day of the vaccine appointment. 

Persons over the age of 18 can receive the one-dose J & J vaccine or the two-dose Pfizer vaccine while eligibility to receive the two-dose Pfizer vaccine is expanded to anyone over the age of 12.   

Appointments at NET Health vaccination clinics are recommended but not required.
