WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – With the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine now available for children as young as 12 years old, a vaccination booster comes with many questions from parents. These questions include how the youngest eligible population responds to the vaccine and whether it is even necessary to have it if children, teens, and young adults are less likely to have severe cases of COVID-19.
With more younger people hospitalized with the virus and efforts focused on keeping businesses and schools open, pediatrician Dr. Amy Seery of Ascension Via Christi explains the science of the vaccine, how it works and how it can play an important role for many children who want to get back to ‘normal’, safely able to visit grandparents and friends who may be immunocompromised .
