FISHERSVILLE, Va. (WHSV) - In Augusta Health’s latest COVID-19 vaccination clinic update, the hospital said the Commonwealth will not begin vaccinating those age 12 to 15 until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approves the recommendation to vaccinate the new age group.

The update says Augusta Health is ready and planning for the expansion of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination criteria to those aged 12 to 15 in its clinics as soon as approval and authorization are provided to the hospital.
