In the article “Covid Vaccine Approved for Younger Children” I learned that children under the age of 11 are now allowed to get the vaccine. This is a positive thing because kids are the ones that get sick more often. About 28 million children are now eligible to get the vaccination. These vaccines only have a third of the medicine. They do this for the safety of the childrens. With only receiving this amount of medicine there will be no worry about having bad reactions. Children will also be receiving a second shot just like any regular adult.

I think this is a good thing because now children have some protection against the virus. Most parents want their kids to get the vaccine. While others don’t want them to. Many people have lost their lives due to covid and it’s a tragedy. We should all work together to overcome this virus.

What do you think? Should children be allowed to receive the covid vaccine?

Dear Lesly,
This is surprising because little kids are now getting the vaccine. I feel like kids under 11 are too little for the vaccine but at the same time kids, that age gets the flu shot so I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing.
One sentence that stood out was,” With only receiving this amount of medicine there will be no worry about having bad reactions.” This stood out because this means that if they get more of it they can get a mad reaction.

Dear Lesly,
It is interesting that now children under the age of 11 can now get the vaccine, I´ve heard many cases of young children getting sick so it is good that they will now be able to be safe from the virus.

One sentence that stood out to me was ¨We should all work together to overcome this virus¨ this stood out to me because if everyone works together we will be able to maybe one day overcome all this.
Thank you for your writing I am looking forward to reading more of your posts.
