Governor Hochul introduced a new campaign called #VaxForKids yesterday. She is encouraging parents to get their children aged 5 to 11 vaccinated. Governor Hochul’s motivation behind the campaign is her concern behind the rise of pediatric hospitalizations.
“As COVID-19 continues to spread, the best armor for our children is the vaccine. It’s safe, effective, free, and over a half million children in New York between 5-11 years old have already gotten their first dose so far,” said Governor Hochul.
