Covid-19 Can Make Some Children Very Sick

COVID-19 can make some children very sick. A new MMWR report finds that among nearly 400 children ages 5–11 years hospitalized with COVID-19 during the first few months of Omicron:

  • 9 in 10 were unvaccinated
  • 7 in 10 had COVID-19 as the main reason for hospitalization
  • 3 in 10 had no underlying conditions
  • 2 in 10 were admitted to the ICU

Staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccines is the best way to protect all children from COVID-19
