Pediatrician Dr. Becca Bakke and infectious disease specialist Dr. Paul Carson share the latest information about how COVID-19 affects children, including the increase in serious illness, how likely they are to spread the virus, and what parents need to know when making decisions about vaccines.
Top 3 Take-Aways:
1. COVID is more dangerous for children than flu – more danger of hospitalization and more danger of death. Still relatively low danger, but we want more for our children than just not dying!
2. The VAERS System is just a repository of raw data. It is not a study and it doesn’t determine if something happened *from* the vaccine or just *after* the vaccine.
3. The risk of myocarditis is higher from contracting COVID-19 than from the COVID-19 vaccine.
