Kelly, a high school senior from Los Angeles, California, founded VaxTeen. After learning about the growing trend of teenagers turning to Reddit to figure out if they could consent to vaccinations in their states and what vaccines they needed at their age, she founded VaxTeen in hopes of providing a reliable and easy to understand source to answer their questions. Through VaxTeen, she hopes to raise awareness amongst her peers about the importance of vaccinations and encourage those who are unvaccinated to receive immunizations as soon as they are able to. Kelly’s long-term goal is to use VaxTeen as a platform to advocate for straightforward legislation allowing teenagers to consent to all vaccinations.
