Honestly, who was NOT aware tat there re now vaccines for kids? And, if the city really wanted to give parents a chance to get their kids vaccinated, why not make an announcement a bit more ahead of time? Oh, wait, it is Chicago……………………
With a week’s notice, Chicago Public Schools said in a Thursday night email that it will cancel school Friday, Nov. 12 for a “Vaccination Awareness Day.”
The announcement comes two days after federal health officials gave emergency authorization for the Pfizer vaccine for use among children ages 5 to 11. The extra day off will make next week a three-day school week for students, since Veterans Day is already a district holiday.
I gotta say, even though I have had my vaccines and booster, I am thankful I do not have to decide for a child.
