Dr. Zeke Emanuel joined MSNBC’s Kristen Welker after Pfizer submitted to the FDA its request for an emergency use authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 6 months to 5 years. They discussed a poll showing that parents were reluctant to vaccinate their young children, but Emanuel said that vaccinating kids 5 and up seemed like a no-brainer — “I’m confused about parents’ attitude,” he said, noting that “with the omicron variant, kids are either going to get the vaccine or they’re likely to get a serious condition of omicron.”

Just how serious of a condition are we talking?

Vaccinate your 5-year-old or they’ll get a “serious condition” of omicron.
