For my NEWSY story, I will be using the NEWSY video “Feds Urge Schools To Provide COVID-19 Shots, Info For Kids.” I will use this to write a piece on the benefits of vaccinating your children. There are many news stories going around about children being vaccinated, both positive and negative, and it should not be difficult to find other resources on this story, such as statistics on child vaccinations and information from the CDC.
This is a very relevant story, as many people are worried about their children being vaccinated, and some people think it could be dangerous for their children, due to a lack of understanding in regards to how the vaccine works. The goal with this story will be to show that children receiving the vaccine is completely safe. Children need to get vaccinated in order to protect the public, and knowing the benefits could convince people of this.
This could especially be helpful for us HCC students, as many of us have younger family members, and those of us will want information on the vaccine so we know how our family members will fare when vaccinated. It is imperative that the people who need this information can get it, to show that this is a safe way to protect younger children.
