With school starting children are contracting COVID-19 at rates higher than any other time during the pandemic.
250,000 new infections were reported in children just last week.
Children went from representing 22% of weekly cases to 27%.
Experts say the best thing to do is to get children ages 12 and up vaccinated, because many of these cases are in children under the age of 12 that cannot get it.
