Now, the US vaccination rate sits at about 65 percent for one dose and 55 percent for fully vaccinated people. That is impressive, and it leads the globe, but we also lead the globe in vaccine hesitancy. This hesitancy caused the Delta variant to crumble the United States as its power was able to infect unvaccinated people very easily and send them to the hospital in record numbers. However, it’s important to note that some people who are unvaccinated didn’t have a choice. The youngest you could be to receive the vaccine is 12 years old, with Pfizer getting that approval before the summer started. Kids under 12 haven’t gotten the opportunity, but Pfizer hasn’t stopped yet.
On Monday, Pfizer and BioNTech said that the COVID-19 vaccine was safe for children between the ages of 5 and 11, with the data saying that it cooperated well with their bodies, and it produced similar antibodies to the young adult studies. An efficacy rate hasn’t come out yet, but it’s clear that it will be as effective as the others. Pfizer plans to ask the FDA for emergency approval, and it matters a lot because we’ve seen a record number of children being hospitalized. With the school year kicking off nationwide, some districts have offered a virtual option for student’s 6th grade and below since nobody is vaccinated, and an approval could get all these kids back in school and prevent another virtual learning disaster. Do you approve of this possible approval decision?
