Hundreds of vaccine clinics around the Commonwealth are now equipped to vaccinate children ages 5 through 11. Clinics like Boston's Museum of Science are set up to cater to kids who may not be the most ready to get their shots. Radio Boston's Amanda Beland visited a vaccine clinic at the Museum to talk with parents and kids about the big poke. Then, we hear from Dr. Eileen Costello, head of ambulatory pediatrics at Boston Medical Center, about conversations she's having with parents and kids who may be hesitant about getting the vaccine.

This segment aired on November 15, 2021.
