On Friday it is welcome news for millions of parents across the land that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pfizer (PFE) is authorizing COVID-19 vaccine for 5- to 11-year-olds.
According to the New York Times, approximately 28 million children are now vaccinated.
The Ability Of 5-Year-Olds To Immunize Up Will Be Critical
“With a very large number of data,” said Dr. Adrian Burrowes, a family physicist and head of the CFP Physicists group on the YAHOO LIVE Finance program, saying that the many aspects of coronavirus transmission were the responsibility of younger children, youths, and children.
“.”While many people argue that children are infected, often in the center of adult infection, they tend to be pretty good.”
Children were reported for 25,1% of COVID-19 cases for the weekend of October 21, and 118,000 new cases were reported for this time. Since the beginning of the pandemic, about 6.3 million children have contracted by COVID-19.
“So many children attend school,” Burrows said. You are fighting the mask warrant in my country of Florida, so many kids may not wear masks, infecting and endangering that family, teacher, and teacher’s life. If we are able to vaccinate 5 years old and older, it is crucial to help us solve the pandemic.”
Safe and effective immunization
Only those 12 and older are currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. 57.8% of eligible populations in the United States are fully vaccinated with a minimum of one dose of 66.5% received.
Dr. Ben Weston, the medical director of the Milwaukee COVID-19 Emergency Operations Center, told Yahoo Finance Live recently that “these vaccines have been delivered to thousands of millions of people all over the world and hundreds of millions in the United States. “It’s a safe vaccine, we know. It’s efficient, we know.”
A 90,7 percent vaccine in the 5- to the 11-year-old age group has been reported active in preventing symptoms of COVID-19. Weston raised these concerns with some parents who are concerned that the shot is safe for their children or not.
Weston said, “The experiments were carried out. It’s no longer experimental. We’ve seen an efficient vaccine and we’ve seen a safe vaccine. Some side effects will occur. Some sore arms are going to happen. Some headaches, body aches, some low-level fevers are going to happen.”
“But we saw no serious harmful effects,” he continued. “I, therefore, believe that parents can take this vaccine to protect their children, protect their families and protect their communities comfortably.”
‘I still support the mandates of masks’ ‘
Although the probability of infections with COVID-19 is less high, children can still spread the virus equivalent to adults.
Burrows said, “I’m in Florida. ” We found only one of the biggest national surges in the Delta. I still support the mandates of the mask. One of the things we must understand is that you can still acquire and spread COVID even with vaccination.”
Though uncommon, cases of breakthrough may occur. Only 0.02% of people who had breakthrough diseases were hospitalized or died of the virus.
“All available vaccines I therefore encourage. However, many people are not vaccinated, so it is important that we continue to wear masks to protect the people that are most at risk. I’m in favor of that”.
However, both adults and children are best protected by vaccination. One study found that non-vaccinated persons are 11 times more likely than their vaccinated counterparts to die from COVID-19. It is essential that we continue our efforts with both COVID and boosters to increase people’s immunity.”
