COVID Vaccine Approved for younger children

In the article, “COVID Vaccine Approved for younger children”, I learned that children under twelve have been too young to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. But all of that changed on October 26, 2021, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended vaccine distribution for children from ages five to eleven. The vaccine has been found to be 91 percent effective at preventing COVID-19 in kids. It is estimated that vaccinating children will prevent up to 600,000 new COVID cases by March 2022.

I think that this is a serious matter that does not need to be taken lightly. Having children vaccinated is going to be beneficial to everyone during covid. Since children are also at high risk for covid, vaccinating most children can cause numbers to go down in cases. I think that this is a good idea that needs to be taken into consideration.

What do you think about children getting vaccinated?
