COVID-19 ‘vaccines’ for youth with health conditions

Sofia Hirani was among the first Canadian kids to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine when the Alberta governement opened up the vaccine for youth ages 12 to15 with underlying health conditions. Sofia was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of five and today faces a range of cancer-related health issues that could predispose her to serious outcomes if she contracted COVID-19. Seeing Sofia receive the vaccine was a huge relief to the family.
