Vaccination rate for kids ages 5 to 11 slower than older kids
(CNN) - Within one month, the COVID-19 vaccination rate among kids 5 to 11 is slower than it was for older children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC found one month after becoming eligible, about 16% of kids ages 5 to 11 have received their first dose.
That is slower than it was for older children.
In mid-June, a month after kids ages 12 to 15 became eligible, about 27% of that age group had received their first dose.
