While the vaccines have proven effective against the Delta variant, not everyone has the opportunity to protect themselves. None of the vaccines are approved for children under the age of 12, and in many cases, it has left kids vulnerable.
Chief Medical Officer for Northwest Arkansas Children’s Dr. Robert Williams said in many cases; kids have ended up in the hospital. So to best protect them, we should all do our part.
“Earlier when we had it, we saw that same rise everyone was all about being masks on and trying to be as distant as possible, and this year we’ve softened that a little bit and I think to our determinant,” said Dr. Williams.
