This recommendation is in line with the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization of the vaccine for this age group. A limited supply of Novavax is available for Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program participants. Ordering through PA-SIIS opened on Monday, July 25. Health centers can submit a one-time order of one package (100 doses) per health center site. See these CDC resources for more information:
