COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) — With students returning to school this week, the Ohio division of the American Academy of Pediatrics is concerned about all children under 12 who have not been vaccinated.

They are calling on the FDA to approve the vaccine for children, especially as cases increase in their age group.

The FDA is demanding more tests for authorization.
