Publix Super Markets will not be offering COVID-19 vaccines to children under 5 years old at this time, a spokesperson told 8 on Your Side.
Publix did not give a reason for not offering the vaccine to young children. It’s website states children 6 months and up are eligible to get the flu shot.
Appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 and up are still available on Publix’s website.
According to vaccines.gov, several Walgreens in the Tampa Bay area will offer the shot to young children.
