Fastest. Article. I’ve. Ever. Written.



30 minutes ago, on 11/19/21, Health Canada announced something revolutionary. Something that interrupted me from my intense Pomodoro study session and drove me to procrastinate by writing an article at lightning speed, or around 150 words per minute.


The big news?


Health Canada has approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11.


I REPEAT, HEALTH CANADA HAS APPROVED THE PFIZER COVID-19 VACCINE FOR CHILDREN AGED 5 TO 11!


The announcement means that elementary school children will be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Previously, only kids aged 12 and up were eligible, but now, all of the CLN members will be able to get vaccinated, and starting now, including me. :D

The vaccine will require two doses of 10 micrograms for kids aged five to 11 — one-third of the dose for adults. These two doses will be spaced eight weeks apart. Pfizer’s clinical trial data showed that the vaccine had 91 per cent efficacy against COVID-19 in this age group. Some of the side effects reported include redness and swelling at the injection site, headaches and fatigue.


My weigh-in: This is AMAZING NEWS. I’ve been waiting ages for this announcement, and finally it’s been done. I’m so relieved, since all of my classmates are vaccinated and I’m not, PLUS half of the class isn’t wearing masks in class. Once appointments open up, I’m getting the COVID-19 vaccine within seconds.


Thank you for reading!
