Kayden smiles behind his mask after receiving a Covid-19 vaccine at the South County Annex in Gilroy on Nov. 7. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Nov. 2 approved the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11. The vaccine is a two-dose series, with the second shot administered three weeks after the first. Claudia Rossi, president of the Santa Clara County Board of Education, visited the clinic, and said the goal is to vaccinate 75 percent of eligible 5- to 11-year-olds in the county by Jan. 1. “Events like this that are offered at times that are convenient for working parents will get us there,” she said.
