Shots in arms are the quickest way out of this pandemic, according to Dr. Kate Williamson, a pediatrician at Children’s Hospital of Orange County and Mission Hospital. Williamson is also the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics-Orange County Chapter.
“It is true. There are some variants going around that increase the likelihood of spread, which is scary news and so the most important thing is to continue to physically distance for kids. When they’re at school, they need to mask,” Dr. Williamson said. “When they’re around anybody else who is not vaccinated, they need to continue to mask and get your family vaccinated as quickly as possible.”
