The golden ticket for kids 11 and younger is a spot in a covid vaccine trial – Washington Post

Of the more than 583,000 coronavirus deaths in the United States, over 300 have been in children younger than 18 — a small percentage, but still a higher number than annual pediatric flu deaths, Campbell said. Children have come down with multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes or gastrointestinal organs. Some have experienced long-haul covid-19, in which symptoms persist for months, and it is still unclear what neurological effects the disease will have among survivors.
