““This is a tremendous development in our fight against COVID-19,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail in a press release.

“Case rates in this age group have been high, and due to sports or school exposures, many children in this age range have had to quarantine. The vaccine will give 12-15 year olds significant protection from COVID-19. It is a step toward normalcy for this age group and will contribute to community immunity.””
