TIOGA COUNTY – Looking to get your child vaccinated against COVID-19?

Guthrie has announced vaccinations are now available for everyone ages 5 and up at select locations in Pennsylvania and New York.

Children will receive the Pfizer vaccine at a smaller dose than an adult would and would also be required to return 3 weeks later for their second dose.

If you want to schedule an appointment for your child, you can call 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).
