    The COVID-19 vaccine is now being tested on more young children in clinical trials.

    Pfizer is set to announce trials on children aged six months to five years.

    Moderna has already been testing in that age group since earlier this year.

    But as Al Jazeera’s Heidi Zhou-Castro reports – many parents still say they will not allow their children to get jabs.
