Connecticut teens can get the vaccine, but only with parental consent
In Connecticut, like many states, minors cannot be vaccinated without parental consent.
According to a Kaiser Family Foundation Poll, 3 out of 10 parents surveyed say they would not get their child vaccinated against COVID.
Today, Dr. Holly Taylor, a researcher at the National Institutes of Health, joins us to talk about her recent paper “Adolescents, Parents, and Covid-19 Vaccination — Who Should Decide?”
We want to hear from you. Should adolescents be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine without their parents permission?
