CVS, Rite Aid now administering Pfizer vaccine to children ages 12-15


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — CVS and Rite Aid pharmacies announced they will now administer the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to children ages 12-15 at all locations following the CDC guidance.

Parents or guardians can schedule appointments for those under 18 with Rite Aid on their website or with CVS Pharmacy on their website or app. Walk-ins are also accepted at CVS Pharmacy.

Rite Aid also launched a clinic inquiry tool as a way to bring vaccines directly to schools, community centers, churches, workplaces and organizations. You can request on-site vaccine clinics conducted by Rite Aid’s pharmacy team. To request a vaccine clinic, visit
