Allina Clinics in Minnesota will start vaccinating 12 to 15 year-olds

[WCCO-TV News, May 15, 2021] Parents of teenagers ages 12 to 15 can make their appointments right now for their COVID-19 vaccine. This comes after the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine last week for young teenagers.

Dr. Eric Barth, a pediatrician at the Allina Health Ramsey Clinic, suggests that parents should make their child’s COVID-19 vaccine appointment at the same time as their annual well-child checkup or sports physicals.

“Now the COVID vaccine can be given without regard to any other vaccines that you may have received, so you don’t have to wait 14 days after getting a routine immunization, so that’s wonderful news,” said Barth.
