Families should encourage loved ones age 5 or older to get vaccinated going into the holidays, said Dr. Payal Patel of the University of Michigan’s Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation during a Nov. 12 live conversation with the PBS NewsHour’s Nicole Ellis. For kids, vaccine access has expanded greatly since earlier in the pandemic when access was even problematic for many adults, Patel said. This question and many more were answered on Nov. 12 during a conversation between PBS NewsHour’s Nicole Ellis, Dr. Payal Patel of the Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation at the University of Michigan, and Laura Santhanam, the PBS NewsHour’s health reporter and polling producer.
