28 Sep e7Health.com CEO Discusses Implications of COVID-19 Vaccination of Children
MedicalResearch.com Interview with:
Jonathan Baktari, MD
CEO of e7health.com
Dr. Baktari, CEO discusses Pfizer’s recent announcement that their vaccine trial for children ages 5-11 has been safe and effective, marking a major milestone in the fight against COVID-19.
MedicalResearch.com: What risks should parents weigh?
Response: Pfizer has already said that based on their studies the lower dose two shot COVID vaccine for children is safe, meaning that their data shows minimal side effects. If that data is correct, then we should expect the same minor symptoms we see with teenagers to the COVID vaccine
MedicalResearch.com: How will this impact the larger fight against COVID-19?
Response: Currently, more than 25% of all newly diagnosed COVID cases in the US are children. This makes up a large portion of the positive cases in the US so a vaccine may have a significant impact on the overall number of COVID cases.
MedicalResearch.com: What impact would this have on schools?
Response: The impact would be probably a relaxing of some of the social distancing and mask wearing which are often very impractical in young children.
MedicalResearch.com: When do you expect the vaccine to be available for children 5-11 and younger?
Response: I expect it to be available by end of October, around Halloween time.
Short Bio: Dr. Baktari is triple board certified pulmonary and critical care expert, vaccine expert, CEO of two medical companies —e7Health.com (vaccine company) and US Drug Test Centers (workplace COVID testing).
