In the article, “Stuff You Should Know Booster Approved for Kids Aged 12-15” (McGraw Hill) I learned that FDA has now approved the Pfizer booster shot for children ages twelve to fifteen. The FDA also shortened the amount of time to wait for their booster shot from six months to five months. This decision was made after some children in Israel received their booster shot after five months and showed no increased risk of side effects. The vaccination is used to protect the population from COVID infections. Thankfully the vaccine is free and offered to anyone disregarding their immigration and health insurance status. Doctors and public health officials recommend everyone gets their shot sooner rather than later. 

I think it is extremely important for people to get their COVID vaccine or booster as soon as possible. I believe that vaccination has helped decrease the number of cases. If everyone was to get vaccinated I believe that the number of cases with COVID will die down. 

Do you think everyone should get vaccinated?
