Understanding COVID-19 Vaccine Criteria

COVID-19 Vaccines for Children

M Health Fairview offers three options for children to get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, including appointments at our retail pharmacies, appointments at our four vaccine hub sites, and appointments at some primary care clinics. You do not have to be a current M Health Fairview patient to get the vaccine from us. Scroll down for more information about each option.

In addition, our care providers may offer the vaccine for your child at unrelated, previously scheduled clinic and well-child appointments.

There are 3 options to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

1. Most Retail PharmaciesOur retail pharmacies will schedule appointments for children ages 5 and older. Beginning Nov. 8, please call your nearest pharmacy to set up a vaccination appointment. 

2. Four HUB Sites: Vaccines will be available to all eligible patients age 5 and older at the following hub sites. Starting Nov. 8, to schedule an appointment for your child or teen at a hub site listed below please log onto your MyChart account or call 612-336-2690, option 1.
M Health Fairview Clinic - Midway
M Health Fairview Clinic - Brooklyn Park
M Health Fairview Clinic - Oxboro
M Health Fairview Clinic - Woodwinds

Parents planning vaccinations for their children should be aware that the hub sites have a different look and feel than a well-child appointment at one of our primary care clinics. Please note the following considerations for choosing the appropriate venue:

• The hubs are designed to accommodate many patients; you and your child may have to wait in line with other patients of all ages.
• Privacy options may vary at the hub sites, and individual rooms are not guaranteed.

3. Some Primary Care Locations: Some M Health Fairview primary care clinics will have the COVID-19 vaccine available for children ages 5 and older. To schedule an appointment at one of our clinics beginning Nov. 8, log into your MyChart account or call 612-336-2690. If you don’t have a MyChart account, you can create a new account here.
