On today’s show, Leah and Antony discuss pediatric COVID vaccines and how parents can go about getting their young ones vaccinated, as children who are ages 5 and up are now eligible. We also discuss the recent surge of COVID in our region and how Minnesota Health Officials are preparing to recommend booster shots for all vaccinated adults.
