Vaccinating Native youth


Twelve-year-old Elias Komulainen was first in line to get his vaccination at the regional tribal health organization in western Alaska Thursday morning. His mother, a physician assistant, went with him.

“I’m so thankful to get my child vaccinated. This will protect him and help get our lives back to normal,” said his mother, Anne Komulainen who works at the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation in a statement released by the health corporation.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky announced in a written statement Wednesday night: “CDC now recommends that [the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine] be used among this [12-to-15 year old] population, and providers may begin vaccinating them right away.”
