We have stepped into the New Year amidst spiralling COVID numbers and it has everyone concerned. With the numbers increasing at such a rapid rate I am glad that Vaccination for kids aged 15-18 years was announced and has started in India.
Now while on the first day 40 lakh teens actually got vaccinated, I already read that this is only 1% of the teen population in our country.
We have been waiting for the vaccine for our kids for so long. So why aren’t parents stepping forward and getting their kids vaccinated? As a parent, I have a few concerns as well and which is why we decided to bring in an expert to get answers to all our questions about the vaccine for children.
