Just wanted to check in with everyone about how you’re responding to the news that the first vaccine trials for 2-5 year olds failed combined with omicron being so much more transmissible.

Personally, I’m really struggling. My 2 year old has risk factors for severe disease, and I felt so good about the possibility of keeping her safe until there was a vaccine that could help her. But now I have no idea how long that will be. We can cut out most exposure, but have to keep her in daycare. All the adults (parents and staff) are vaccinated, but even with an 86% vaccine rate, my county has more cases than ever right now. I want to focus on Christmas, but I’m just so distracted by worry.
