With the COVID-19 pandemic entering a tenth month, experts says adherence to public health measures appears to be waning in some parts of the country. "COVID fatigue," meaning failing to comply with masking, hand hygiene and physical distancing guidelines, has fueled a resurgence in COVID-19 cases in more than half of the U.S. states.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, discusses the rising number of COVID-19 cases and how vaccine experts in science and industry are working together in unprecedented ways.

To practice safe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, this interview was conducted using video conferencing. The sound and video quality are representative of the technology used.

Excellent as always.
I would like to ask if someone could address what might be understood of the transmission of the virus once a parent receives the vaccine, however their child who has a vulnerable medical condition has not received the vaccine.
Thanks
