Dr. Scott Miscovich of Premier Medical Group said it was “grossly negligent” to have children who are not old enough to be vaccinated return to in-person learning.
Speaking on this morning’s “Spotlight Hawaii,” the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s livestream show, said, “If you are a parent and your child is below the age of being able to be vaccinated, they shouldn’t be in school. Pediatric admissions are soaring across the country.”
The CDC first authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer-Biontech COVID-19 vaccine in children ages 5 to 11 on Oct. 29.
