“Primarily teachers are worried because they know kids primarily need to be in the classroom. But they also know if a majority of kids in the classroom are not vaccinated, there will be children who become sick with COVID and make their classmates sick and they’ll have to go back to online learning. And that’s a real concern for teachers and principals and parents. So if you’re really concerned about not going back to online learning — get your children vaccinated. That’s the most effective tool we have to prevent that,” explained Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Reginald Washington.
