U.S. Rolls Out COVID-19 Vaccine for Young Children, Ending Long Wait for Parents

Seven-year-old Gael Coreas stuck out his left arm fearlessly to receive his first COVID-19 shot at a health clinic in the nation’s capital on Wednesday. Coreas was in the first cohort of young children to be inoculated as the United States on Wednesday began administering the COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 5 to 11, the latest group to become eligible for the shots that provide protection against the illness to recipients and those around them. Hehe, even I am on the waitlist to get the vaccine now!
