How to Keep Kids Safe from Covid This Halloween 10/28/21
It's Halloween week and if you are still skeptical or have questions about whether trick or treating is safe for your kids, Dr. Andrew Myers, researcher and co-author of the book Simplifying the COVID Puzzle: How Two Essential Vitamins Fortify the Immune System has answers. "As long as kids are outdoors and away from large groups, masks may not be necessary," he believes. "To be completely safe, masks may be worn with or without Halloween masks."
He is available to provide valuable insights on pertinent questions like how safe or scary is Halloween this year? Should kids wear masks? What precautions should parents/people handing out candy take to make trick or treating as safe as possible?
While vaccines have been authorized for children 12 and up by the Food and Drug Administration, emergency authorization for children ages 5 through 11 is still under consideration by the FDA. A decision is expected a couple of days before Halloween.
Children do get sick and face the possibility of dealing with what's known as long COVID-19 — fatigue, fogginess, and other symptoms that linger. "One of the most effective ways to protect our children from the virus and improve response to the vaccine is to have a competent immune system," says Dr. Myers. "Taking a couple of vitamins each day is the cheapest life insurance policy and one of the simplest ways to build a robust immune system," he asserts.
Simplifying the COVID Puzzle: How Two Essential Vitamins Fortify the Immune System, by Dr. Andrew Myers and Dr. Grace McComsey, seeks to provide individuals across the political divide with education and common-sense insights into how to fortify their own health against COVID and maintain an overall healthy immune system.
Recent studies show that lung damage and thromboembolism, two of the most severe COVID-19 outcomes, have been linked to deficiencies in vitamins D and K2. The authors simply and clearly explore how vitamins D and K2 act as a low-risk, proactive supplement combination.
Talk to Dr. Myers about:
1. Is trick or treating generally considered safe this year?
2. Are haunted house tours generally regarded as safe?
3. For kids who aren't vaccinated, are there any safer alternatives to trick or treating?
4. What are easy steps to COVID proof your life?
5. Why is there continuing hesitancy by some Americans to get the vaccines?
6. The critical importance of a robust, competent immune system in fighting COVID and why Americans are still at risk?
Dr. Andrew Myers is available to speak to media outlets, and review copies of the book, published by Ballast Books are also available.
