Marin Poised to Vaccinate 12- to 15-year-olds

Marin County Public Health is preparing to hit the ground running and launch a COVID-19 vaccine outreach effort for youths aged 12-15 once a vaccine is authorized for use for that age group.

Public health departments across the U.S. are anticipating a decision from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as early as Wednesday, May 12, making Pfizer the first vaccine available for adolescents. Once the FDA grants emergency use authorization, the Western States Scientific Advisory Group will convene to render an independent recommendation to authorize use in California.

There are approximately 14,000 Marin residents aged 12 to 15. Public Health has set a goal to vaccinate at least half of the group within a week of receiving authorization.

See the full news release.
