With cases surging in Wasco County and the school year approaching, now is a good time for anyone who is age-eligible to get vaccinated. The only vaccine currently authorized for youth is the Pfizer vaccine, for those 12 and up. The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses three weeks apart. Full immunity occurs two weeks after the second dose.
