Today Governor Steve Sisolak has announced on social media the use and authorization of the Covid-19 Vaccine on children as young as 5 years of age. Here is what he had to say.
Today is an important day for families all across Nevada & I am so proud to say that the COVID-19 vaccine is available for those as young as 5-years-old. The State Immunization Program will inform health care providers that vaccinations for 5- to 11-year olds can begin in Nevada.
Thank you to the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup for coming together to give parents confidence in the science behind this vaccine. I encourage all families to choose vaccination for their children and for themselves. Protecting our kids will give them more days at school, with their friends and with their families. Vaccination is our way out of this pandemic.From Governor Steve Sisolak Facebook Page
The Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup was created by California’s Governor Gavin Newsom. This consists of a group of California physician scientists that review vaccine process for safety before vaccine is distributed in California.
