The FDA has recently approved that those aged 12-15 will now be able to receive the booster shot. Something else that they have done is shortened the length in time that people need to wait in order to get the shot. The reason that this was approved is because a couple of teens from Israel, about 6000+ received the booster shot and did not show any risks of side effects. The CDC stated that widespread vaccination is a critical tool used in order to protect people from COVID/infections. A good thing about what the government is doing, the U.S gives the vaccines for free regardless of your stability here. It doesn’t matter if you are a citizen, immigrant, you can still get the vaccine for free. All in all, doctors would recommend people to practice social distancing, wearing masks and having good hygiene.
