Amarillo Health experts say they are seeing the most children becoming hospitalized because of Covid-19.

Dr. Brian Weis Of Northwest Texas Healthcare System says they have 5 or 6 children in the hospital with Covid-19, more than they have seen with recent surges. The children are under age 12 and the vaccine isn’t available to them.

Texas Tech Physicians say they have yet to see a vaccinated pediatric patient be admitted to the hospital.

Health experts say with school starting soon we will see a surge in Covid-19 cases among children. They say the best way to protect children and prevent the spread is to get those under 12 years old vaccinated.

Health experts say the virus comes in different forms and not everyone gets the same symptoms.
