HONESDALE, PA – Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) is now offering both Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to children as young as 6 months of age in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recent recommendation. Vaccines are offered through WMCHC’s pediatric health centers.
The schedule is as follows: Pfizer only for all ages at Honesdale Pediatric Center, 1837 Fair Avenue, Honesdale, Wednesdays and Thursdays, phone: 570-253-5838; Moderna for ages 6 months to 5 years only - Waymart Pediatric Center, 27B Woodlands Drive, Waymart, Thursdays, phone: 570-488-9550; Moderna for ages 6 months to 5 years only - Sterling Pediatric Center, 62 Industrial Park Road, Lake Ariel, Wednesdays, phone: 570-689-7565.

Pediatric vaccine administration is by office appointment only. Children do not have to be patients of WMCHC. Parents are asked to bring the child’s insurance card with them.
