Every caregiver around them should be vaccinate. Children halves four times higher. Chance and getting hospitalized if they live in a state with low vaccination rates rather than states with high vaccination mets now if you're a parent of young child you're wondering when will be when will feed the vaccine available for them. I strongly support independent scientific view for vaccine uses for children on twelve. We can't take shortcuts. That scientific work. But i made it clear.

Donations top doctors are committed to keeping the public at large updates on the process. So parents can plan now. The schools we know that if schools follow the science and implemented safety measures like testing maske adequate ventilation systems provided the money for social distancing.

My plan also takes on elected officials in states. That are undermining you. These life saving actions right now.

These governors won't help speed depend. Demi i'll use my power as president to get them out of the way.
