https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/30/us/politics/fda-omicron-vaccine.html?smid=url-share FDA will authorize Pfizer & Moderna to incorporate the Ba 5 & Ba 6 Variants in their new Vaccines. Omicron is already included.
Parents who have a wait and see attitude about the Vaccines are putting their children at risk. Billions have taken the Vaccines with no major hospitalization or sickness. Kids can be infected, hospitalized and die. Taking this Vaccine not only gives your kids immunity to Covid 19, it reduces the number of Variants in the population.
If you get Covid once, you can get it again. There’s no guarantee the 2 nd infection will be mild. Why put your kids at risk?
In NYC we’re going to make Paxlovid available at testing sites. If you test positive, you can get the Drug and be assured your symptoms will be mild.
NYC should take the next steps: Every child requires the Vaccination for Day Care and entry to any school.
