Dreams Park Requires Vaccinating 12-Year-Olds, Upsetting Some Parents

STATEMENT RELEASED TODAY

Dreams Park Requires

Vaccinating 12-Year-Olds,

Upsetting Some Parents

COOPERSTOWN – Cooperstown Dreams Park’s announcement that it will require players 12 and over at the youth baseball park this summer to have COVID-19 vaccinations is already causing consternation among parents.

So far, some states will not provide vaccines to students under 16 until further testing is done, according to Jodi Plimpton-Werstein of Lee County, Fla., which puts parents in a bind.

“Should a vaccine become available (for 12-15 year olds) in the near future,” said Plimpton-Werstein in a letter to the editor, “they are now putting parents in a position to decide between breaking their child’s heart by denying them a lifelong dream of playing at Cooperstown, or give them a vaccine that is still in its infancy, with no real data regarding long term effects or efficacy.”

Here is the text of Dreams Park’s statement, released today:
