EDEN — Beginning Nov. 29, children ages 5 to 11 may receive the COVID-19 Pfizer pediatric vaccine at UNC Rockingham Health Care, the hospital announced Monday.

The clinic, which is located at 518 S. Van Buren Road, Suite 2, is behind the hospital, and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

Parents or guardians are encouraged to drop in with their children. Appointments are not necessary.
