LBPHD Begins Vaccinating Children 5 Years and Older with Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine

Loup Basin Public Health Department will be starting to administer the Pfizer  COVID-19 vaccine to individuals aged 5 and up. The Pfizer vaccine series for these individuals will be two doses, three weeks apart.  

Due to the pandemic, many individuals are behind on routine vaccinations. LBPHD offers all routine childhood vaccinations, limited adult vaccinations, and COVID-19 vaccines. Please contact the health department with questions or to schedule routine vaccinations.
