Show Notes

In this special episode, it’s all about the kids!  The Pfizer COVID vaccine just got approved for kids 5 and older and doctors and kids right here in Rochester helped make that happen.  Special guest host 10-year-old Lily interviews Dr. Jennifer Nayak, a Pediatric Infectious Disease specialist at the University of Rochester Medical Center, about running this study site and how the vaccine works.  Then we hear from some superhero kids who are participating in the study about their experience and what they want kids and their parents to know about the vaccine.
