Santa Clara County health officials expect vaccination sites for children ages 6 months to 5 years to be up and running next week.

With U.S. Food & Drug Administration authorization secured for children under 5 and a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation set to come after the Town Crier’s print deadline, the last group of the population eligible for vaccinations will be able to receive the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines at county sites, including one in Mountain View, county health officials announced at a press conference Friday (June 17).

Children under five account for only 3.2% of COVID cases, but vaccinating them is still important according to County Health Officials. The CDC is expected to vote to recommend the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines on June 18.
