Coming Soon: Vaccinating More Youngsters

COVID-19 vaccine shots for 12- to 15-year-olds could begin as soon as two vaccine advisory committees issue recommendations for using the two-dose vaccine manufactured by Pfizer. On Monday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared that the Pfizer vaccine is safe and offers strong protection for younger teens based on testing of more than 2,000 U.S. volunteers ages 12 to 15. More announcements could come in the next few days.

Marin County Public Health was preparing to vaccinate this next age group and is poised to get underway if the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) give approval in United States and then Western States Scientific Advisory Group gives final approval for use in California.

There are approximately 14,000 Marin County residents aged 12 to 15. If approvals are provided, May 14 would be the first day the younger group is eligible to receive doses. Read more about the process in the County’s news release.

 

Online Town Hall May 11 about Adolescent Vaccinations

An online discussion about COVID-19 vaccinations for kids aged 12-15 is set for 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 11. It will be a great chance to hear about safety, efficacy, and possible side effects of the shots once they are available for this age group. Here is the lineup of scheduled speakers:

  • Dr. Matt Willis, Public Health Officer, Marin Health and Human Services (HHS)
  • Dr. Lisa Santora, Deputy Public Health Officer, Marin HHS
  • Dr.Shilpa Marwaha, Kaiser Permanente, Infectious Diseases
  • Mary Jane Burke, Marin County Superintendent of Schools

Reminder on Guidelines for Face Coverings

As of May 3, face coverings are not required outdoors for fully vaccinated people except when attending outdoor events such as live performances, parades, fairs, festivals, sports events, or other similar settings. The guidelines are different for the unvaccinated; they must wear face coverings outdoors any time physical distancing cannot be maintained, including when attending outdoor events such as those listed above.

In indoor settings outside of one's home, including while riding public transportation, face coverings continue to be required regardless of vaccination status.

See the California Department of Public Health’s webpage for details. Don’t forget: It’s best to keep a copy of your COVID-19 vaccine card with you at all times.
