Kids 12+ Can Get Vaccinated Today
Every single person who is vaccinated helps.
L.I.S.D. announced today that masks will be optional for the grad ceremonies and for the Fall school year. This begs the question, do you feel your child is adequately protected? You may not be too worried about your child's ability to survive a potential bout with COVID-19, but you have to keep in mind that they could bring it home and infect you. It really gives you something to think about. If you are interested in vaccination for your child or if you yourself need a second shot, you may want to check out this press release from the city:
