Any child under the age of 18 must be accompanied by that parent or guardian on site during and 15 minutes after getting their shot.
Starting today, all four Magic Gym sites and the Barnett Park site will begin offering Pfizer shots to these younger patients at 9 am.
Both adults and children must bring some form of ID, such as a student ID, to fill out consent forms and paperwork at the site.
Walk-ups are welcome at all five sites.
