New York, NY (77WABC)- Many people are thrilled about the upcoming approval of the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11 years old.

When I first received the Pfizer vaccine a few months ago, I was very excited and had no reservations. However, with the recent vaccine mandates, I’m not sure how I’m going to feel if the government forces my child to get a brand new vaccine when we don’t TRULY know all the side effects.

While the research is certainly promising, when it comes to my child, I’m obviously very careful. According to AP, Pfizer studied a lower dose of its two-dose vaccine in more than 2,200 kindergartners and elementary school-aged kids. The kids developed coronavirus-fighting antibody levels just as strong as teenagers and young adults.

According to data from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,159 children in the 0 to 4 age group and 357 children in the 5 to 18-year-old age groups have died from Covid-19 since January of 2020 in the US.

With the recent announcement from Governor Kathy Hochul that 2-year old’s must wear masks, a vaccine is looking better and better to some parents. No matter what your political views are, I think all parents can agree that we just want what’s best for our children.
