Education Minnesota Urging Schools To Vaccinate Eligible Children

(St. Paul, MN)  --  Education Minnesota is urging school leaders to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to all school-aged children.  

On Tuesday, Denise Specht, the president of the organization, called on state and school leaders to vaccinate students as she believes it's the best way for parents to keep both children and communities safe.  Specht's announcement comes after the FDA advisory panel endorsed the Pfizer vaccine for children 5-to-11-years-old.  

Child-sized doses may be available in Minnesota as soon as next week.
