Importance of Children Vaccinations Reminder
While most young children don’t suffer severe illness due to a Covid-19 infection, novel variants can quickly take advantage of unprotected populations. During the Omicron surge, there was a 5x increase in hospitalizations due to Covid-19 in children aged 0-4 years. Not only does vaccination protect young children from illness, it also protects families, communities, and schools by decreasing the prevalence of Covid-19 as a whole. Read more for additional information on boosters for 5-11 year-olds.
Long COVID Resources
As new research emerges, we are learning more and more about the long-term effects of COVID-19, and the symptoms that continue to affect individuals’ day to day lives long after their diagnosis. Although many people get better within weeks of testing positive for COVID-19, some continue to experience symptoms months after first being infected, or may have new symptoms come up at a later time. Read more about long COVID resources in our community and beyond.
