Additionally, Spillman said if children get the vaccine, more students can resume in-person learning and participate in sports that are key for youth development. Ad He said the health department is planning to do a walk-in vaccination clinic at the JC Penny in Danville on May 22.
“No matter who gives the first somebody else can give the second,” he said. “It’s a partnership in that sense. We just want it done. We don’t care who does it, we just want it done.” But with CDC saying second doses can be administered as late as 42 days, Spillman said time is not a “deal-breaker.”
Spillman said children 12 and older are “a group we really want to protect” because they are more active and interact often with adults which could lead to virus spreading. But he said time is a constraint and added that he hopes to get at least one dose of the vaccine in some students’ arms before school is out by June.
