Children as young as 2 years old have started to receive Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine Wednesday as part of a trial by Stanford medical researchersaccording to CBS San Francisco.  

We need to make sure that children are protected,” Dr. Yvonne Maldonado told the San Francisco Chronicle. “There’s been over 3 million children infected, thousands hospitalized and almost 300 deaths. Even though it’s not the half million-plus adult deaths we’ve seen, we’ve seen an impact in children.” 

Kids between the ages of 2 and 5 are eligible, according to reports.
