The Redding Health Department has sent out information to parents about registering children aged 12 to 15 for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at the Danbury mall mass vaccination site. Health Director Doug Hartline says families can used the Vaccine Administration Management System, or VAMS portal, along with the Vaccination Appointment Assist phone Line, but a customized registration link has also been created.
Given the anticipated demand at the opening of this age group, Hartline says they cannot guarantee same day registrations/walk-ins.
If parents register through the customized link, they will be asked to electronically give consent. Parents are strongly encouraged to also attend the clinic with their child as they will have to complete a pre-vaccination questionnaire.
The clinics through the customized links are today through Tuesday, with second dose appointments for exactly three weeks later.
