The Missoula City Health Department announced on Tuesday that it is yet to vaccinate children between the ages of 12 and 15 and that they are not yet making these appointments.
Many parents have expressed a desire to book vaccine appointments for this age group, and while they expect the appointments to start soon, they have yet to do so.
The health department is asking parents not to attempt to make a vaccination appointment for this age group until an official announcement has been made.
The Department of Health will announce the opening of these meetings via a press release, their Facebook page, www.covid19.missoula.co, and www.missoulainfo.com.
The reason for the delay is that while the Food and Drug Administration cleared Pfizer for use in this age group on Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not expected to approve this until Wednesday.
When this happens, the Department of Health will then need to review the updated CDC guidelines before they can vaccinate the 12 to 15 year old age group.
