Gov. Mike DeWine issued a statement on Monday approving a move by the Food and Drug Administration to administer the Pfizer vaccine for Covid-19 to those who are ages 12 to 15.
“I am encouraged that the FDA has already updated Pfizer’s Emergency Authorization to include youth ages 12-15. Following a recommendation from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the CDC, Ohio will immediately expand vaccine eligibility to youth ages 12 to 15 and provide appropriate guidance for parents, guardians and vaccine providers across the state.
“Vaccines are our way back to a more normal life,” said DeWine.
