Kids Under 5 Still Can't Get Vaccinated. What The Omicron Surge Means For Them

Update: 2022-01-05

Description

New daily cases are at an all-time high. The good news: vaccines and boosters have never been more widely available — but not for everyone. Children five and under still do not have a vaccine available as the omicron surge stretches health care workers thin.

For advice on navigating the pandemic in this moment, we turn to Dr. Ibukun Kalu, a pediatric infectious disease doctor at Duke University.

Additional reporting in this episode from NPR's Allison Aubrey.
