Clinic at the Cincinnati Museum Center – Post World

More than 60 public school districts in the Cincinnati area will be dropping out of school this week and next, and regional health officials and pediatricians are hoping children will roll up their sleeves during the vacation to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

“With the holidays around the corner, now is a good time to vaccinate children,” said Kate Schroder, the interim chief strategy officer Health cooperation, which represents six area hospital systems. “It protects you. And we have to let children be children again. You have given up so much. “

To date, 23% of children aged 5-11 in Hamilton County have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Only the two-dose Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is approved for use in children of this age group.
