WBDC-PODCAST

Dr. Michael Hirsh told Talk of the Commonwealth he feels the vaccinations for 6 month to 4 year olds, which will be available Tuesday in MA, will be an important part of the fight against Covid going forward*. As Covid becomes more seasonal, like the flu, he feels this will begin to grow immunity and stave off serious illness.

Dr. Hirsh is realistic that vaccination for those so young may take some time to be embraced by the public. Worcester has been stuck at 63% total vaccination rate for the past 3 months.

*The FDA has authorized Pfizer’s three-dose vaccine for children 6 months to 4 years old, and Moderna’s two-dose vaccine for children 6 months to 5 years old.
