SAN MATEO COUNTY TWEENS TAKE THEIR TURN
Holy Family 7th graders encourage community to get vaccinated and hope for a return to normal
May 21, 2021
A class of eager seventh graders received COVID-19 vaccines Thursday in hopes of soon returning to normal in-person instruction while also encouraging their community to arm themselves against COVID-19.
“When it finally came out that we were able to get [vaccinated] I was super excited that soon I would be safe,” Diana Caamal, a seventh grade student at Redwood City’s Holy Family School, said.
Caamal, 13, is one of 12 students to get vaccinated during St. Francis Center’s fifth vaccine clinic held in partnership with Dignity Health. The students first became eligible for Pfizer Inc. doses last week following federal approval, which changed to include those ages 12 and older.
