Devin on a really exciting birthday present

"When my mother first told me that the vaccine that had been in development finally got approved for 12 year olds, I felt a wave of excitement, joy, and relief wash over me. I am turning 12 in about 3 months, so to me, getting the vaccine will be one of the best birthday presents that I have ever received.

 

I really would like to have the vaccine because I will be resistant to COVID-19, and I can be without a mask outside, but I think I will still wear a mask because not everybody is fully vaccinated."
