Dr. Gordon says his biggest challenge right now is managing family members' anxiety. As one of our leading pediatricians, he suggests there are too many unknowns about COVID to guide long-term decision-making. Recent news from the American Pediatric Society suggests that children and teenagers are not immune, and we need radical behavior change. We will discuss these topics, including his philosophy about vaccines.
