On October 19, 2021, the FDA authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use in children 5 to 11 years of age. With the COVID-19 vaccine now approved for use in younger children, many parents are asking the question: should my child get the vaccine? As we have already seen, many states are beginning to implement vaccine mandates. In the early fall, New York City issued a mandate requiring all public school workers to receive at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, providing no option for weekly testing. In addition, California is the first state to announce that students will have to be vaccinated for the following school year if they want to attend in person. Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz from the Bronx has already introduced a bill that will require the COVID vaccine for all eligible students in order to attend school. As of March 7th, however, NYC lifted school mask mandates and ended the vaccine requirements for indoor dining and venues, leaving mask requirements in schools to be decided by local districts. Despite this, there is always concern for rising cases and new variants to emerge.
