Ada, MN — Norman-Mahnomen Public Health had a successful first week of vaccinations for their youngest age group of those between 12 and 15. A week ago it was announced that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was safe for that age group and Public Health immediately began taking appointments and will continue to do so with parent permission. Sarah Kjono of Norman-Mahnomen Public Health says the data is indicating that the vaccine in this age group is very safe and will play a key role in continuing to slow the spread.

Kjono says parents should be having a conversation with their kids, as well as their doctor, about whether or not they would like to get the vaccine as their age group has been one of those most impacted close contacts and quarantines.

Vaccines are available for all age groups. To schedule an appointment, call Norman-Mahnomen Public Health at 784-5425 for the Ada office or 935-2527 for the Mahnomen office.
