COVID-19 Vaccine and Kids

Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is approved for children ages 12-15, we want to do our best to answer your questions.

What to Know - How to Schedule

At Cook Children's, we believe that all children deserve access to the best pediatric health care possible. Our community-based neighborhood clinics can help with well-child and sick visits, vaccines, and other supportive resources, like dental care and behavioral health for kids from birth through adolescence.

All neighborhood clinics accept Medicaid, CHIP and most commercial insurance plans, and our staff members speak Spanish and English. Best of all, with seven offices located throughout Tarrant County, great medical care is where you need it – close to home.

After-Hours Care

Extended-hours access for minor sick-care is available at some of our locations: Northside, Renaissance, and now available at Morris! This option is open to any child with a Cook Children's pediatrician. These clinics provide sick-care access from 6-10 p.m., Monday-Friday, so that unnecessary visits to the ER can be avoided.

Your child's well-being and safety

In Cook Children's more than 100-year history, we've never faced a challenge like COVID-19. But we know that together, we'll get through this. At the onset, we limited in-person visits and focused on caring for your child through virtual visits when appropriate. While this technology approach has many benefits and will continue to be offered in certain circumstances, it also limited the type of services we could provide. After careful consideration, we're accepting all in-person visits to our primary care offices, specialty care clinics and surgery centers.

To ease any concerns you might have, we're taking great precautions to create the safest environment possible for patients, families and staff. These important safeguards include:

  • Everyone who enters a Cook Children's facility, including physicians and staff will be screened for fever and symptoms of respiratory infection, such as cough, shortness of breath or sore throat.
  • Any symptomatic employee will be sent home.
  • Any patient or parent who fails the screening will be evaluated further and may need to be rescheduled.
  • Everyone in the building, including parents and patients over the age of 2 will be asked to wear a cloth mask, bandana or scarf at all times. Please bring a facial covering for you and your child.
  • Only one parent/guardian can accompany the patient. Siblings will not be able to attend unless they have an appointment, as well.
  • Our plan is to take patients directly to exam rooms; however, if there is a brief wait, we will ensure proper social distancing in the waiting area.
  • Well child visits are scheduled during designated hours and always prior to any sick patient appointments. 
  • Primary care physicians and nurses are responding to the needs of sick children via telehealth visits. When it is essential to evaluate a sick child in person, they are offered an appointment at designated times to avoid exposing well children.

At Cook Children's, we're dedicated to the well-being of our patients, families and staff. For information you can trust and resources to help you and your children thrive during these challenging times, we encourage you to visit

We look forward to seeing you soon!
