Are you planning on vaccinating your kids against COVID-19?

A person receives a bandage after their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at a mobile vaccination clinic during a back to school event in August. Vaccines could be available for kids ages 5 to 11 as early as next week.

The moment that a lot of parents have been waiting for is almost here. Children ages 5 to 11 could be able to get vaccines as early as next week.

While some parents may be excited for this emergency use authorization to be issued, that's not true for everyone. And there are still parents whose children are younger than 5, who don't have an option to have their kids vaccinated just yet.

We'd like to hear from all types of parents about what this moment means for you — whether you've got big family reunions planned or if you're going to wait and see.
