A daughter and her mother jump for joy after the young girl received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 experts' kids get the vax

Masked smiles, happy dances, and jumps for joy were tweeted out by Johns Hopkins researchers, epidemiologists, and clinicians to capture the moment their young children got their first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine

As of Nov. 10, nearly one million kids between the ages of 5 and 11 had received the first doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine.

The children of Johns Hopkins University researchers, epidemiologists, and clinicians were among the first in line alongside their jubilant parents, who have spent the past 20 months working behind the scenes on pandemic-related science or on the front lines of patient care.

Many of the JHU parents took to Twitter to share their excitement, relief, and jumps for joy as their kids rolled up their sleeves for the long-awaited shot.
