Vaccinating children 5 to 11 will bring us closer to ending pandemic, Sask. microbiologist says – CBC

Health Canada currently reviewing Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine for children 5 to 11

Nov 09, 2021

Saskatoon mother Pamela Beaudin is ready to vaccinate her children. She says she has always trusted science — it’s how she got her twin boys in the first place.

“Our boys are a product of IVF, so I trusted science to give me children, and I’m going to trust science to keep them safe,” Beaudin said.

Liam and Wyatt will turn five in December and then be eligible to get the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, expected to be authorized for use soon by Health Canada for kids five to 11.

Saskatchewan has already ordered 112,000 doses of the vaccine for kids in that age group, set to arrive in early- to mid-November.

Beaudin said she’s “counting down the days” until her children get the jab.

“To me, it just makes sense to get them vaccinated and I will be so excited when we take them to go get their vaccination. It’ll be a great day,” she said.
