Covid-19 in Shasta County: Virus kills man in 50’s; youth could get vaccine by mid-May 05/05/2021

Published May 6, 2021

Shasta County youths ages 12 to 15 could be eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as early as next week.

That's because use of the vaccine will likely be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at that time, according to USA Today.

"As soon as it’s approved, our clinics will be open to that age group," Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) spokeswoman Kerri Schuette said.
