Vaccination Clinics for students offered by Saratoga County Public Health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation to expand eligibility of booster doses to those 12 to 15 years old. CDC now recommends that adolescents age 12 to 17 years old should receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer vaccination series.  At this time, only the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 12-17.  Data show that COVID-19 boosters help broaden and strengthen protection against Omicron and other variants. ACIP reviewed the available safety data following the administration of over 25 million vaccine doses in adolescents; COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
 
Saratoga County Public Health Services has added more vaccination clinics for students who reside in or attend school in Saratoga County.  Availability is limited and advance registration is required.
