    WSB- you should publish the shot rates for kids 5 and younger. Nationally- it’s 2.8% as of about 10 days ago. It’s funny how out states tracker doesn’t show rates of the youngest (5 years and younger- and if I’m missing it- please send a link) (I’m sure it’s because it takes them 6 months to get the data together). Lol.Find other actual news.

      The under-5 vaccines were first “available” (not really) 5 weeks ago today, and Moderna takes 2 more weeks after the second shot for a child to be fully vaccinated…

      That means the soonest an under-5 can be fully vaccinated, excluding trial participants, is Tuesday, Aug. 2. So how are even 2.8% fully vaccinated? (Not even taking into account those who chose Pfizer’s 3 doses.)

      I don’t feel this data would be useful for another month or more, reflecting when the true availability kicked in.

    Does anyone know which variant this vaccine protects against?

      Serious question, you guys. Would appreciate the help from anyone for guidance.

    So, less than 3% of kids five and under are vaccinated.  Simple math tells me that a large portion of these parents were part of the majority backing government vaccine mandates last year for the rest of us.  I’d like to ask those parents why it’s ok for them to choose not to get their child vaccinated now? Why is choice an option for THEIR kids but wasn’t for me and my teens?   

Sorry, comment time is over.
