St. Joseph Health Department Encourages Students To Take COVID-19 Vaccine

St. Joseph Health Director Debra Bradley advises parents to get their kids immunized in time for school with only two months left until school starts. For parents interested in getting their students immunized from the COVID-19 virus along with the typical state-required vaccinations, Bradley suggests families begin now as it takes five weeks to be fully vaccinated with Pfizer’s vaccine, the only vaccine authorized for children 12-years-old and older.
