Much has been discussed about the effects of COVID-19 on anyone from the elderly to those with pre-existing conditions. But what about the children, and how about the spread of asymptomatic cases?

Dr. Rob McGregor is the chief medical officer at Akron Children’s Hospital, and he joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to touch on all of those subjects, including the possibility of vaccinating children, from teens to even babies down the road. Dr. McGregor says they are seeing good news with not only the vaccine rollout, but the numbers of cases overall. Part of that good news is what little spread of the virus that has occurred in school buildings and sporting events. On the topic of asymptomatic cases, he says the only way for a parent to know if his or her child is infected is to get tested.

Dr. McGregor talked more about the studies of inoculation in children. One of the studies has to do with using the same brands of the vaccine, just with smaller doses spread out over multiple trials.
