Among the people who are testing positive for the coronavirus are children, many of them younger than 12 years old, the minimum age of individuals who can get vaccinated. Speaking on the issue was Doctor Damaris Cruz from the Ministry of Health and Wellness’s Maternal and Child Health Unit. She discussed the importance of ensuring children sanitize and wear masks.
Doctor Cruz also talked about cancer patients, for example, who cannot get vaccinated because of their condition. She reminded everyone to also take advantage of the recently opened testing sites.
