Concerns for children

Health Watch

WASHINGTON: Children will likely pay the price for adults in the US not getting vaccinated at high enough rates to slow or stop the spread of the Covid-19, which has been surging in most states, a vaccine expert said.
Dr Peter Hotez, a vaccinologist and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, said if vaccination rates continue to lag amid an increased spread of the virus, the youngest members of the population will be most affected.
“Transmission will continue to accelerate…and the ones who will also pay the price, in addition to the unvaccinated adolescents, are the little kids who depend on the adults and adolescents to get vaccinated in order to slow or halt transmission.” – CNN
