The novel coronavirus changed our lives for good and people cannot wait to get back to a life of normality or something as similar to normality as possible. People believed that this could be possible with the help of viable treatments and vaccines, but these subjects are filled with controversies these days.

Young children are the ones who’ll pay the price due to lack of adult vaccination

CNN notes that Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccinologist and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Tuesday that if vaccination rates among adults and kids 12 and older continue to lag amid increased spread of the virus, the youngest members of the population will be most affected. Check out what he had to say as noted by CNN.

“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.”
