Floyd County Public Health to Offer COVID Vaccines to 12-15-Year-Olds

Floyd County Public Health will soon be offering Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to adolescents.

Along with the Iowa Department of Public Health, Floyd County Public Health is urging families to vaccinate their children ages 12-15 as an important step in keeping kids and families healthy and safe. Residents are encouraged to go and sign their children up on the county wait list.  When the vaccine is available and clinic dates have been set, you will receive a phone call to set up a time for your child’s vaccination.

The vaccines are expected in the coming weeks. For any additional questions, call Floyd County Public Health at 641-257-6111 or your local healthcare provider.  

Last week, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended Pfizer’s COVID19 vaccine be available to 12-15-year-olds and that vaccinations of adolescents can begin immediately.
