(STACKER) — The youngest Virginians can now get the COVID-19 booster vaccine. On Tuesday, May 17, the Food and Drug Administration made the Pfizer-BioNTech booster available to children between the ages of 5 and 11.

There are 73 million children under the age of 18 in the U.S. They represent almost one-quarter of the country’s total population. Nationally, about 30% of children between the ages of 5 and 11, and 60% between 12 and 17 are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Still, concerns about the vaccine persist, with parents questioning its efficacy as well as both its short- and long-term side effects. Vaccine mandates continue to be an ongoing topic of concern for many parents as the end of the 2021-2022 school year approaches.
