President Joe Biden is urging all children 12 and up to get the COVID-19 vaccine. He says its the safest way to keep kids safe.
President Joe Biden unveiled a six-point strategy Thursday aimed at strengthening vaccination requirements for federal and private sector workers, increasing school safety protocols and making COVID-19 testing more accessible.
Biden also said the Department of Education will provide additional funding to help local school districts backfill salaries and other funding that had been withheld by state leaders for implementing COVID-19 safety measures.
