IBJ Podcast: Kids, COVID and Christmas … what’s safe?

With the holidays upon us—and only a small percentage of kids vaccinated against COVID-19—host Mason King has been wondering what’s safe when it comes to family gatherings, parties and public events

So he called Dr. James Wood, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Riley Children’s Health, to talk about vaccinations for children, how latest strains of coronavirus are affecting younger kids and whether it’s safe for grandkids to gather with their grandparents at the holidays. (Hint: You’re safest if the kids are vaccinated and the adults are boosted.)

Plus, King asks Dr. Woods to share what he’s done about vaccinations with his own young kids and how they’re treating family outings.
