“Testing is an important reactive response in the fight against the virus. Getting vaccinated is the best proactive response,” said Benjamen Jones, Waukesha County Health Officer. “This holiday season, children and adolescents age 5 and older are now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Tens of thousands of children and teens have been hospitalized across the country with COVID-19. While children and adolescents are typically at lower risk than adults of becoming severely ill or hospitalized from COVID-19, it is still possible,” Jones cautioned.
