Clarification on the FDA approval for Pfizer COID-19 vaccination of ages 12-15

[Akron, OH] – On Monday May 10, 2021 Pfizer and BioNTech was given Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to vaccinate ages 12-15 years of age. The next step will be for the Center

for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to meet on Wednesday May 12, 2021 to discuss whether to recommend the vaccine for

12-15 year olds. The steps could be completed in a matter of days and the vaccine administration could begin after the CDC adopts ACIPs recommendations.

In anticipation that the ACIP recommendation will be for use of the Pfizer vaccine in children ages 12-15. SCPH is providing opportunities for children ages 12-15 to be vaccinated. SCPH

will be hosting an extended drive thru clinic next Wednesday May 19, 2021 from 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM. SCPH will also host Pfizer drive thru clinics every Wednesday from 1:00 – 3:30 at
