Kids 12 and over are now eligible for vaccination.

The county has scheduled five clinics with the Pfizer vaccine targeted specifically at these kids and their families, though anyone unvaccinated may sign up.

Details on these clinics and a number of single-shot walk-up clinics for adults are available at

These clinics will be the very best chance for island kids 12 and older to get vaccinated. There may not be future 12+ clinics held in the islands.

If you are an adult and not vaccinated, now is the time to do so. Safety precautions will be lifting rapidly and risk will increase as well. Details on ongoing clinics available at the link above.
