Child Information

A few tips for a safe and comfortable vaccine experience for children.

  • Let children know a few days in advance that they will be going in for a vaccine – we recommend not to surprise a child with a shot.

  • All children need to have a parent or guardian present for the vaccination.

  • Bring a fun distraction for your child – a book, puzzle, toy, game, tablet, or phone are all good options for keeping their focus on something other than the vaccination.

  • The pharmacist will work with you and your child to help find a comfortable and safe position – the child can pick which arm they want and whether or not they want to watch the injection. The adult present with the child may be asked to help hold the child on their lap if that would be comforting for the child.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can get their COVID-19 vaccine from a Balls Foods Pharmacy?

Balls Foods Pharmacy will be providing COVID-19 vaccine to patients 12 years of age and older. At this time, we do not have pediatric formulations available. We encourage parents to work with their child’s pediatrician or your local health department for access to pediatric COVID-19 vaccines.

What do I need to do on the day of my vaccine appointment?

Please bring your driver’s license or state ID and your pharmacy insurance card, including your red, white, and blue Medicare Part B card if you have one. If you are getting a COVID-19 vaccine, you will need to plan to stay in our building for 15 to 30 minutes after each dose.

How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?

As of September 11, 2023, COVID-19 vaccines became commercially available. With this change, COVID-19 vaccines may have a charge. If you have insurance, you may not have to pay a copay. Our pharmacies accept most Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances.

What if I do not have insurance for the COVID-19 vaccine?

If you do not have insurance, a cash price quote will be provided to you and payment is required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine through our pharmacies at this time. Please reach out to our pharmacies for a quote.
