Right now, even though the government has said vaccinations are open down to 16 years, the availability is the problem.
Parents are not vaccinated, cuz until recently the cut off was 65. And now some places are cutting off at 50, due to limited supply of vaccines. And most parents are younger than 50. It's goina be a long haul, that hopefully won't have any BIG bumps.
Here in Arlington, a population of 220,000, not a single person under 39 has died of Covid. The risk is real but not for the kids and not even for most of their parents. The risk is for the older adults with whom they come in contact. I was on a conference call with the head football coach of my college alma mater and he was proud of what they had done to "protect the kids." I almost jumped in and said I wasn't worried about the kids, I was worried about him. It is very tricky. The older 2nd degree contacts are at most risk.
