I am excited they can do their part to help protect others, including those who are more vulnerable like my mom, a cancer survivor who is immunocompromised. As a pediatric health care provider, I’m looking forward to the peace of mind this will give so many families.” Vaccination is over 90% effective at helping prevent COVID-19 in kids and is an important tool to help stop this pandemic. CDC recommends that all children ages 5 and up get vaccinated against COVID-19.
