Some of them are masking, some of them are vaccinated if they're lucky, but we're also concerned about other things that go on in school. There are lice and there's still colds and there's still all of these other things. But one of the things that pediatricians and physicians have been seeing is an uptick in respiratory infections.
Dr. Claire McCarthy joins us today to talk about these infections. She's a primary care pediatrician at Boston Children's Hospital, as well as an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. And of course, a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics.
This episode will cover what RSV's are, the overlap we're seeing of all of these viruses this year, and how masks are helping.
