MMC-BD Now Vaccinating Adolescents 12-15 Years of Age

MAY 13, 2021 — Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam (MMC-BD) has announced it is now providing COVID-19 vaccinations for adolescents 12-15 years of age. MMC-BD hosts ongoing walk-in clinics every Tuesday and Thursday as well as every third Saturday utilizing the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, which is now approved for those 12 and older.

As minors, individuals age 12-17 must have a parent or guardian present to receive the vaccine. Individuals age 12-17 should bring their parent with them, have their parent/guardian and have their parent complete this form.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccination to include youth aged 12-15 on Monday. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has made the vaccine available to this age group after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave its final approval Wednesday.

No safety concerns were found for up to eight weeks following vaccination of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in more than 1,100 adolescents (12-15 years of age) during the phase 3 clinical trial. These results are comparable to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial results for older populations. More than 130 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine have now been administered safely in the U.S.

DHS Opens Vaccine Eligibility to Everyone 16 and Older

APRIL 5, 2021 — The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announces a major milestone in Wisconsin’s COVID-19 vaccination program in that everyone ages 16 and older are now eligible for the vaccine. After consistently ranking tops in the nation for vaccine administration and with a steady increase in vaccine supply, Wisconsin opens eligibility nearly a month earlier than expected.

“I know this past year hasn’t been easy for anyone, and I want to express my appreciation to all Wisconsinites who are making sacrifices such as staying home, wearing a mask, and keeping six feet from others,” said DHS Secretary-designee Karen Timberlake. “These actions are backed by science. They help to slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. And today, we are excited to give everyone 16 and older the opportunity to continue protecting themselves and their loved ones from this virus. It will take patience, but we encourage everyone to get vaccinated.”
