    Covid and Age.
    An unvaccinated child is at less risk of serious Covid illness than a vaccinated 70-year-old.
    12-MORNING-KINGS-CO-HOSP-superJumbo-v5.png?quality=90&auto=webp
    As you can see, the risks for unvaccinated children look similar to the risks for vaccinated people in their 50s.

    Nationwide statistics from England show an even larger age skew. Children under 12 (a group that’s combined with teenagers in this next chart) appear to be at less risk than vaccinated people in their 40s if not 30s. ...

    “Covid is a threat to children. But it’s not an extraordinary threat,” Dr. Alasdair Munro, a pediatric infectious-disease specialist at the University of Southampton, has written. “It’s very ordinary. In general, the risks from being infected are similar to the other respiratory viruses you probably don’t think much about.”
