Covid Vaccine Update

Covid Vaccine Update

  As everybody knows, we have a deadly virus spreading around the world and several lives were lost because of it. Right about now, we’re all wondering how long it will take for the vaccine to be released, but I’m here to give you an update.

  Scientists have estimated that adults will have access to the vaccine in late 2021, but children will not have access until more studies have been done. For this reason, doctors don’t want to start injecting little kids with the vaccine without knowing what it does to adults. Kids have totally different immune systems, even though children have a larger role in spreading the virus.

The coronavirus cases in Missouri have not been doing so well. The total cases in Greene County are about 14,000, that’s a lot of cases for Springfield! Missouri has 300,000, which is technically a lot. The cases in Missouri haven’t been doing well, but we can still fix it and try our best to contain it before we get our vaccine. Stay safe and wear a mask!
