Steuben County Sets Date to Vaccinate More Teens
Monday, May 17, 2021

ANGOLA — Steuben County officials say some interest is growing locally from parents wanting to inoculate their children as the federal government approved people 12-15 to start getting vaccinated, joining those 16-18 that had weeks earlier been approved.

Indiana State Department of Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Lindsay Weaver announced last week that parents can start signing up their 12- to 15-year-olds for vaccines.

For young people, ages 12-17, only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for use. Because of that, the state started sending out the Pfizer vaccine to counties that did not already have it available.

As the Steuben County Health Department gears up to open a new COVID-19 vaccine clinic in the Steuben Community Center, the Steuben County Health Department will officially start making that vaccine available on May 24th.
