While children under 16 have not been approved to receive any of the currently available shots, clinical trials to get shots in little arms are underway. Delivering the vaccine to children will be necessary to tame the virus, experts say, and could remove uncertainty around when students will fully return to in-person learning as they already prepare for the upcoming fall 2021 school year.

Most Americans support the pause of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine, finding that it is “responsible,” according to an Axios-Ipsos poll released Tuesday . The poll comes after Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last week recommended the pause on the vaccine due to six cases of rare and severe blood clots combined with low blood platelets.

There was high … [Read more...] about Poll: Most support Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause as ‘responsible’
