Pediatric boosters are available at the Community Vaccine Center on St. Croix at the Charles Harwood Memorial Complex, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Appointments are recommended due to the size restriction of the CVC space.

Please telephone for an appointment at 340-777-8227. Pediatric boosters are available on St. John on Wednesdays at the Virgin Islands Port Authority gravel lot from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
