Despite the Trump administration’s new policy, many pharmacies still won’t vaccinate children against flu
As a dark winter approaches with "twindemics" of Covid-19 and the flu, an effort by the Trump administration to increase the number of children receiving flu shots is not working, according to a CNN investigation. In August, the administration issued a declaration authorizing pharmacists nationwide to give flu shots to children ages 3 and older, which most states have not allowed. … But calls to more than 175 pharmacies, and discussions with large pharmacy chains, show that the policy landed with a thud. The vast majority of the pharmacies have not taken advantage of the Trump administration's declaration and still refuse to vaccinate children that young.
