Covid-19: children's vax like an 'insurance policy' says paediatrician

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 18 January 2022

A paediatrician says the children's Covid-19 vaccine is akin to an "insurance policy" - protection against the low-risk of severe Covid.

Thousands of 5 to 11 year olds turned out yesterday to have their injection, on what was the first day of the paediatric rollout.
