Colin Sweeney, 12, gets a shot of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as his mother Nicole pats his shoulder in Pasadena, Calif. Minnesota officials are preparing for the vaccination of kids ages 5 to 11.

You might remember staying up late to hunt all over the internet for a coveted COVID-19 vaccine slot last spring. Are you showing that same level of conviction for your child?

Kids ages 5 to 11 could be eligible to get shots of their own as soon as this week, and some parents who were all Beanie Babies over the vaccine when supply was limited earlier this year are not feeling the same kind of urgency when it comes to getting their young kids vaccinated.

This hesitancy is prevalent even among well educated parents who've otherwise demonstrated impeccable vaccine compliance for their children. These are folks who fastidiously rolled up their infants' pant legs to inoculate them from everything from pertussis to hepatitis B.
