On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine has been authorized for use for Americans ages 12-15. That adds another 17 million people to the pool of eligible vaccine recipients. What impact do local officials hope this will have?

Also this hour: We discuss the latest news in our weekly political roundup.

And sociologist Dr. Stephen Klineberg joins us to walk through the findings of the 40th annual Houston Area Survey.
