The Latest: The kids are alright

Dear Reader,

Today I woke up to some much-needed good news: The Pfizer vaccine is 100% effective in adolescents between the ages of 12 and 15, according to the company. If the findings hold up to peer review, they could be a game-changer for kids (and their parents) desperately hoping for a safe return to school. Right now, kids under 16 still aren’t eligible for vaccination, as science journalist Emily Willingham wrote in the Coronavirus Blog, but it looks like they could be soon.
