How to talk to younger kids about getting COVID-19 vaccinations
A Maryland pediatrician had advice for families whose children have not yet been vaccinated.
About 19.7% of all Americans who received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine within the last two weeks were children ages 12 to 15, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last updated Sunday. Only one other age group — 25 to 39 — had a higher share.
“I do find a lot of families are nervous, but preparation is extremely important,” said Dr. Christina M. Brown, a pediatrician with Kaiser Permanente in White Marsh, Maryland.
