Vaccines And Children

It has been about one month since the FDA cleared the COVID vaccine for teenagers, yet most remain on the sidelines. According to 14-year-old Angelina Allegrini of San Antonio, who got the shot, the key to influencing people her age lies on Twitter and Instagram. There are nearly 17 million children in the country eligible to receive a coronavirus vaccine, and health experts want them protected by the start of school in the fall.
