"I strongly advise parents to get their adolescent children immunized against COVID-19,” said Dr. Ian Sklaver, of Garden City Pediatric Associates in Beverly. “While serious infections from COVID are uncommon in adolescents, they do occur. The best way to protect your children is by getting them vaccinated. COVID will continue to spread until a large majority of people are immune. Immunization helps protect us all; it is our best shot!"

“I strongly encourage all my patients to get the Pfizer vaccine,” said Dr. Brian Orr, of Brian Orr Pediatrics in Gloucester. “Getting everyone vaccinated is the only way for us to get out of this pandemic. The vaccine is highly effective and is the one I received when I got vaccinated. Help us end this pandemic! Get your kids vaccinated.”
