Biden Urges Parents to Get Their Younger Children Vaccinated
Jeffrey D. Zients, the White House’s Covid-19 response coordinator, emphasized again at a news conference earlier on Wednesday that the rollout was still emerging, promising that millions more pediatric doses would be “in the air and on trucks” in the next 24 hours. By next week, he said, around 20,000 sites would offer the pediatric vaccine, with more coming in the weeks after.

Mr. Zients said that state and municipal health departments would conduct thousands of community clinics at fairgrounds, zoos and sporting events, and that schools would host thousands of their own clinics this year.

“I know many parents have been waiting for this day, but I also know some people might have some questions,” Mr. Biden said, encouraging parents to speak to local doctors and community leaders about vaccination.

“This vaccine is safe and effective,” Mr. Biden said. “So get your children vaccinated.”
