High school senior Kelly Danielpour founded VaxTeen to give her peers reliable and easy-to-understand information about COVID. She had learned about a growing trend of teenagers turning to Reddit to figure out if they could get vaccinated in their state without their parents’ consent. Now Danielpour wants to use her website to advocate for straightforward legislation that allows teenagers to consent to all vaccinations.
