The Livingston County Department of Health will host is first COVID-19 vaccination clinics for children ages 5 to 11 this week.

The clinics come as the county sees its number of active cases surpass 200. The 204 active cases as of Monday is triple the number of cases in Livingston County as compared to the same time last year, according to the county department of health.

The increase is the result of "more things open to full capacity, increased testing efforts for surveillance in schools and non-vaccinated staff," said Jennifer Rodriguez, the county's public health director.

Two first dose Pfizer vaccine clinics for ages 5 to 11 years old are scheduled this week. The first is scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. Nov. 18 at the county's Murray HIll Campus at 2 Murray Hill Drive, Mount Morris. The second clinic is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on Nov. 20 at Dansville High School, 282 Main St., Dansville.

The clinics are by appointment only. To register, visit https://tinyurl.com/ydtyjenn.

"As the colder weather and winter holidays begin to bring more people indoors, now is a good time to get your COVID-19 vaccination - including pediatric vaccines and booster doses for those who are eligible," Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez reminds residents that the pandemic is not over.

"The Health and safety of our community is paramount and we need to, more than ever remain vigilant," she told The Livingston County News. "If you are eligible get a booster as vaccine efficacy wanes over six months."
