How we can protect children from COVID - Podcast

Children aged 12 and over will be eligible for vaccination from September 13. While this is great news for parents with children over 12, it’s left many parents of young children concerned. After all, what happens to unvaccinated kids when we open up? And when they go back to school and childcare, is there a plan for managing the inevitable outbreaks?

Jordana Hunter, Education Program Director, and Anika Stobart, Associate with Grattan’s health program, answer some of the most common questions about children and COVID in the latest podcast with Kat Clay, Head of Digital Communications.
