Sara Oliver said Wednesday.

With so many older people vaccinated, children and teens are starting to make up a larger proportion of coronavirus cases now than earlier in the epidemic.

"In April, 9% of Covid-19 cases were aged 12-17 years, which actually represents a larger proportion of cases than adults 65 and older," Oliver told the ACIP meeting.

To get adolescents and their parents onboard, primary care providers, pediatricians and family medicine physicians who are speaking with parents and the kids will be critical, Shah said.

Fully vaccinated people, however, are not required to wear masks outdoors, except when attending crowded events.

Last month, state health officials announced the June 15 target date to fully reopen the state amid falling Covid-19 infection rates and low hospitalizations, shelving its color-coded tier system that dictates re-opening by county based on infection rates.

California's mask mandate, however, would remain in place at least "in the short run," Newsom said at the time.

Spokespersons for the governor's office and California Department of Public Health did not respond to CNN requests for comment Wednesday.

About 52% of California's population has had at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, including 89% of those over age 65, according to CDC data.

After a startling outbreak in December and January, the state has had a 7-day average of less than 2,000 new daily coronavirus cases for the past two weeks.

'I can go out more instead of just staying home and doing nothing'

Though the CDC has not fully signed off on vaccinating 12- to 15-year-olds, some locations began vaccinating the young teens on Tuesday.

Doctors already have the vaccine on hand, and the CDC's approval is a foregone conclusion.

Once he gets both doses of Pfizer's two-dose vaccine, "I think I'll be less scared of getting it and less scared of having issues with Covid-19," he said.

Cameron Carrion, a 14-year-old whose mother watched CNN's interview with Jacob and then drove to the same vaccine site, said he felt good about getting the shot.

"I feel like it's better that I got it because I can go out more instead of just staying home and doing nothing," he said.
