Covid-19 Vaccine for 12 & Up!
Who can get this vaccine?
Any Tanque Verde Pediatrics Patient aged 12 and Up.
Is it recommended that my child, aged 12 & up, get the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine?
YES. We are recommending the vaccine for all of our patients in this age group.
Are you giving this vaccine to parents as well?
Not at this time, but stay tuned and informed as this may change in the future.
Can my child with asthma get the vaccine?
YES! There is no contraindication to the vaccine other than allergy to any of its components. We recommend that any child with any immune suppression or dysfunction, any chronic illness (respiratory or otherwise) or any child age 12 & up get this vaccine.
Can my child who has already had Covid-19 disease get vaccinated?
Yes and it is recommended that they do. As long as they are asymptomatic on the day of vaccine and out at least 10 days from diagnosis, they can move forward with vaccination.
Can my child who is currently in quarantine after a Covid-19 exposure be vaccinated?
No. It is recommended that your child complete their quarantine. Then they can get the vaccine.
If my child has a fever or is sick on the day of vaccination, can they get the vaccine?
No. Please do not send any sick children in for a vaccine. They will be turned away for a medical assessment.

How do I sign my child up?
- Call our office to set up an appointment 520-722-2585.
- Then, if you have not filled out a consent form, please do so by clicking this link. If your child had your first Pfizer Covid vaccine in our office on 5/22 or 5/23, you already have a consent on file, so you don’t have to fill out another one.
Can my child who drives come by themselves?
Yes. The form has a consent form within it, so if you are comfortable sending your child in by themselves, we will monitor them for 15 minutes as recommended prior to letting them go.
My child got their first vaccine at another site. Can they get their second vaccine at TVP?
Yes! Make sure that it is at least 21 days after his/her/their first shot. Just fill out the consent form, and call our office to schedule that appointment. Don’t forget to bring your child’s vaccination card with you!
When do you anticipate vaccines for children aged 6-11?
We are hearing that by September of 2021, there may be approval for the Pfizer vaccine for this age group. We will review the data and keep you all informed. If approved and recommended, we anticipate a mass vaccination clinic quickly after, pending vaccine supply.
