A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that children aged between 12 and 15 would also be getting the COVID jab in the United States. The announcement was welcomed by all, and understandably so, as we all want to get rid of his virus as soon as possible. Even the public has welcomed this move as appointment slots are filling up quite quickly. Children are excited to get the vaccine, and that is a good sign. The quicker we can vaccinate a large number of people, the sooner we will be able to get rid of the virus.

It has only been a week since the FDA approved the vaccine for the younger folks. The good news is that in that timeframe, more than 600,000 children have been vaccinated. Another 3.5 million children between the ages of 12 and 17 have also received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine so far.

It has also been revealed that phone Walgreens and CVS pharmacies carry out vaccinations for adolescents ages 12 to 15. Still, both the companies have refused to provide the data on how many young people have been vaccinated. Walgreens, however, did say that there was a boost in booked appointments which shows that parents are eager to get their children vaccinated as early as possible.

The vaccination rollout is still in its early stages, and it is difficult to predict how many children will be vaccinated in the near future. However, it is going reasonably well, and there is nothing wrong with being optimistic about the results.

The authorities have said that they will have to keep a close watch on the way vaccinations are going. This is because they need to be prepared for any challenges that might be stirring up. Some states are also trying to set up vaccination centers in schools and pediatrician offices.

The real challenge is to meet the demand for the vaccine. Almost everyone wants to get vaccinated as quickly as possible, which puts a lot of strain on the supply chain. When there is high demand for a product, it can be challenging to match it with the current supply methods.

The key is to play it smart; there is no need to vaccinate one demographic at a time completely. Instead, the better way of doing it is to target small chunks of different age groups to get a good cluster of people vaccinated. This methodology will help decrease the spread of the virus and help save countless more lives.

If you are eligible for vaccinations, it is recommended that you register yourself as soon as possible. This is not only to help you but also to help others as well. There are many people out there who cannot survive the effects of the coronavirus, and if you can help reduce the spread of the virus, it will be doing them a great favor.
