With the Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19 now approved for children as young as 12, our News Editor, Keegan Schroeder, explores some of the reasons why some parents may be opposed to vaccinating their children, and whether the children themselves should be given that choice.

Vaccination can be a notoriously divisive topic, with some people holding extreme anti vaccination beliefs. Separated or divorced parents often already seek legal advice for resolving issues, and with the Pfizer Covid vaccine now approved for use in children, there is now a new big issue on the playing field for some parents and family lawyers to deal with. We begin by hearing the beliefs of one such parent.
