DHS Recommends All Kids Get COVID Vaccine

The Department of Health Services is restarting its calls to get children vaccinated against COVID-19. Dr. Jasmine Zapata says that while children may not get as seriously ill from the disease, they are still feeling its affects.

“In addition to the acute illness that COVID-19 can cause there are also long COVID symptoms that our children can experience.”

Zapata says it remains the most effective way to keep kids in school and healthy, and to make it possible to do in person learning.
