NY begins to test vaccines on kids 6 MONTHS to 12 years old to test “the safety and effectiveness”

An upstate boy is a COVID-19 vaccine pioneer, according to a report.

Walker Clary volunteered to participate in a pharmaceutical trial to “test the safety and effectiveness” of the Moderna vaccine for those aged six months to 12 years, according to syracuse.com

The two-shot vaccine is currently only offered to those 18 and older.

“I want to help out other kids,’’ Clary said, according to the news outlet. “And it’s exciting to be one of the first my age to get the shot.”

He’s a rising fourth-grader from Cicero, a northern suburb of Syracuse.

Walker got his shot at an upstate hospital on Wednesday, his father, Bob Clary, told syracuse.com, with nothing more than a sore arm and a little disturbed sleep for his troubles.
