  1. It is interesting to look at the statistics for New Canaan which show based on CDC definition of ‘up to date’ on vaccines https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/booster-shot.html that our highest rate of coverage in New Canaan is with the 65+ group followed by the 5-11 year olds. The youngest group will see coverage further increase over the coming weeks. In order to improve our ‘up to date’ coverage within the general New Canaan population increased vaccine uptake is needed by all age groups. As for masks I am not sure why so much focus on the kids that have statistically the best Covid outcomes – mask efficacy at the level indicated in this article and vaccine rates at the levels above would say that other groups should be focussed on as well.

  2. This is a great article with lots of helpful information from experts and professionals. Thank-you so much for publishing it
