Aimee Krauss, the director of the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District, said clinics for the youngest age group are not scheduled at this time, but they do offer vaccines for individuals ages 5 and up, and are giving out free pool passes to those who receive their first dose.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices cleared the way for children as young as six months old to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

That means children under the age of 5 can receive either the Pfizer-BioNTech or the Moderna vaccine. The vaccine is recommended even for children who have had the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the government agencies.

  • Horrifying to give this vaccine to youngsters at the age where they do not need it. We have seen so many friends and collogues negatively affected by the boosters, ending up on respirators, a-fib heart issues and so on. And now people think it’s a good idea to inject children who have almost zero risk from Covid. Shameful.

    • Totally agree Joe. I got “hit with a ton of bricks” about 1 month ago after my wife got her 4th vaccine (2nd booster), as required by her job. She got sick right after the shot and then I got sick from being around her. I overheated, had muscle aches, and a significantly reduced appetite for a couple days. I’m so glad that I have never participated in this system. years ago I would have been lauded for practicing “alternative health.” Instead I feel like an outsider and pariah in my community for believing in medical freedom.
