Wide of Conde and her twin sister being vaccinated at Cook County Health vaccination siteSTORYLINE:Thursday marked the first day that children ages 12 to 15 could receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the Chicago area, days after the Food and Drug Administration authorized the Pfizer vaccine for emergency use for the tweens and teens.Parents flocked to area vaccination sites with their eligible children after government-run vaccination sites and other providers spent recent days gearing up.Nancy Fendley signed her 12 and 15-year-old daughters up to be vaccinated at New Trier High School as quickly as she could.Fendley says she "couldn't get my 12 and 15-year-old daughters that shot in their arm fast enough."Her 12-year-old daughter, Ali Novosel, was excited to get the shot, saying "Iwon't have to worry so much about the little things like pulling up my mask or, like, staying super far apart from people."Cook County Health vaccination sites saw an uptick in appointments on Thursday when vaccine eligibility expanded, a spokeswoman said.Children are a key part of the strategy to have as many people as possible vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, especially as vaccine hesitancy among adults is an increasingly growing concern and possible deterrent to reaching herd immunity. And though children overall have contracted the virus at lower rates and usually become less sick, they can infect more vulnerable people.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
