Detroit Free Press: Nearly 1 million kids have gotten COVID vaccines

By the end of Wednesday, nearly 1 million children ages 5 to 11 will have received a COVID-19 vaccine.

Jeff Zients, President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 response coordinator, confirmed on Wednesday that another 700,000 shots have been scheduled in pharmacies across the country for younger children.

Adam Keating, a general pediatrician with Cleveland Clinic Children’s, told USA TODAY, “There’s a large cohort of parents, and to some extent a large cohort of kids, that are really excited to get vaccinated for this.”

“They realize these are very effective vaccines,” he said.

If you’re taking your child to get vaccinated against COVID-19, experts said there are approaches that can make it easier for you both.
