Question: Is it unnecessary for young, healthy people to get the COVID-19 vaccine? Answer: As more adults and teens aged 16 and up become vaccinated, our focus shifts to our younger population, as they remain susceptible. The more people who are vaccinated, the less COVID-19 can spread. When anyone is vaccinated against COVID-19, no matter what age, they are not only protecting themselves, but also stopping the spread to their friends, older family members, and everyone who works hard to keep our communities safe and open.
HHSA released the first of a two-part series called Ask the Experts, a video featuring nine local doctors answering community members’ questions about COVID-19. The 30-minute video serves as another way to connect community members with medical professionals and answer questions about COVID-19. The video can be found on the agency’s social media channels and on ShastaReady.org.
