COVID-19 vaccine available for kids ages 12-15 at Chadron Safeway

The Safeway Pharmacy in Chadron has received 80 doses of the Pfizer vaccine cleared for use by 12-to-15 year-olds from another pharmacy, but must use them within the next few days.

The Pfizer vaccine requires super-cold storage and neither the first pharmacy nor Chadron Safeway has that equipment, leading to the use-it-or-lose it situation.

Anyone wanting the Pfizer vaccine, either for a child or adult, simply needs to contact the Chadron Safeway Pharmacy to make arrangements.
