Shots for tots: COVID vaccinations start for little US kids

By LINDSEY TANNER and ANGIE WANG

Little Fletcher Pack woke up Monday morning and asked: “Is today vaccine day?”

For the 3-year-old from Lexington, South Carolina, the answer was yes.

The nation’s infants, toddlers and preschoolers are finally getting their chance at COVID-19 vaccination as the U.S. rolls out shots for tots this week. Shipments arrived in some locations over the weekend and some spots, including a Walgreens in South Carolina and another in New York City, opened up appointments for Monday.

Fletcher’s mother said that once her son is fully vaccinated, he can finally go bowling and visit the nearby children’s museum.

1. So I have been seeing reports that the CDC recommended this

Based on a study with only a tiny number of kids actually contracting covid. Anyone else read that? What's the story here?
