As pediatrician and parent, I’m troubled we still can’t immunize kids under 12 against covid

As a pediatrician and the parent of a child still too young to get vaccinated, I’m disappointed that we are still waiting to be able to immunize kids under age 12, particularly when we consider the scientific triumph of the coronavirus vaccines. In the past, the shortest interval from conception of a vaccine to approval was four years. With unprecedented collaboration, innovation and investment across government, academia and the private sector, vaccines against covid-19 were developed and deployed true to the effort’s namesake: Operation Warp Speed.
