A: Best-case scenario: late summer/fall 2021 for older kids (12+); early 2022 for younger kids. All the usual pandemic-era caveats about uncertain timelines apply!
We dedicate today’s TGIF post to all of the children and teens volunteering for vaccine clinical trials. Hooray and thank you! And thank you to all of the (adult) scientists who have worked diligently to ensure that these trials are conducted with an uncompromising commitment to safety.
As always, we’re keeping on top of the science and will continue to report out as new data hit the scene.
