YORK, Pa. On May 10, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Pfizer vaccine for minors between the ages of 12 and 15, which the authority says will help the US return to normal.
Dr. Sean Campbell of Wellspan Pediatric Medicine on Joppa Road in York and Shrewsbury joined FOX43’s Amy Lutz this morning to discuss the decision.
In his professional opinion, Dr. Campbell that parents should not hesitate to get their children vaccinated. He said vaccination is more than just protecting the child – it’s also protecting adults.
Dr. Campbell also said that children who are vaccinated should expect the same side effects as adults, but nothing more serious.
“The kids will get the same kind of reaction,” he said. “What the vaccine doesn’t do is cause infertility.” Dr. Campbell said he was wary of the myths circulating online.
At the end of the day, he recommends getting the vaccine and encourages parents to make sure their children are protected.
