Back To School Edition: COVID-19 Vaccines & Mask Mandates

This week, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Pfizer full approval for its COVID-19 vaccine.

Schools around the country also started to reopen for the 2021-2022 school year. With schools reopening and the Delta variant of COVID-19 flaring up across the US, many are bringing up the pros and cons of mask mandates in schools in addition to COVID-19 vaccine access to young children.

In today’s episode of Health Affairs This Week, Senior Editors Rob Lott and Jessica Bylander weigh the perspectives for both topics as parents prepare for the new school year.
