Mayo Clinic Minute: What to expect with COVID-19 vaccinations for youngest kids


Dr. Richard Kennedy, co-director of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, says even though younger children have tended to fare better with COVID-19, the reality is that some are still getting very sick and even dying of the disease.

Besides protecting children, he says it may also reduce the amount of transmission and exposure in places like day cares and schools.

Parents can be assured that when a vaccine does get approved for the most vulnerable of populations, it will be safe.
