Vaccinations OK'd for Youth Ages 12-15
Posted 5/18/21

On May 10, 2021, the US Food and Drug Administration approved using the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination for students ages 12 to 15. On May 12, both a vaccine safety review panel with the Centers for Disease Control and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup recommended that students in that age group receive the vaccine.

Vaccination opportunities for students are now opening around the Bay Area. We have listed a number of them on our new Student Vaccination Opportunities web page. We are also exploring partnering with the Alameda County Public Health Department and Alameda County Office of Education on setting up vaccination clinics at our sites. We expect to have more information about that project shortly.
