    Hi Haylen,

    Thanks! My twins are now 15 months old and my oldest is 4. I've been on here for at least 5 years now but lately don't have a lot of time to post.

    Good luck with your new role

    Thanks for posting the information - I'm looking forward to following this story and the impact it might have on vaccinations across the US.
