Beyond protection for our children, pediatric vaccination can help us better protect our families and our communities, helping prevent children from bringing the virus home to family members who may be more vulnerable and helping reduce community transmission levels. While we celebrate this important milestone today, I want to recognize the over 700 children who we have tragically lost to this disease. I want us to remember that pediatric vaccination is just one important piece to this complex puzzle. We continue to work to address the outstanding need to vaccinate as many adults as possible and to provide protection to our communities, including to those who are younger than five and are not yet eligible for vaccination. We know that vaccination helps to decrease community transmission and protect those who are most vulnerable. With this new recommendation, I know parents have questions. As a parent myself, I understand the need to have as much information as possible to ensure our decisions are in the best interest of our children. I encourage parents with questions to talk to their children's pediatrician, their school nurse, and their local pharmacist or other trusted source to learn more about this vaccine and its benefits and to get answers to your questions. Get the information you need to make the best decision for your child. And let's take a moment to commemorate today, this moment, that we can bring protection to our children. Thank you. And, with that, I'll turn things over to Dr. Fauci.
Very Positive
