Tommy Wilds, a 13-year-old seventh-grader at Edgewood Middle School in Wooster, flinches as he receives the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine during an in-school clinic Friday, May 14, 2021.

The Food and Drug Administration recently expanded emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to include children ages 12 to 15.

There have been no serious safety concerns involving children so far in clinical trials, however many parents share a degree of hesitancy in getting their child the shot.

Today on Wellness Wednesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we answer your questions about the vaccine for kids answered.
