Morning Briefing: OC to make COVID vaccine for kids available today

Dr. Dan Cooper, a pediatrician with UC Irvine’s Institute for Immunology, said he is advising parents to get their children vaccinated. However, he is careful to tell reluctant parents to at least think about it. He does not favor mandates. “I would at first like to try to get parents to get the vaccine,” Cooper told City News Service.
