Can you travel with kids if you’re fully vaccinated?

(NEXSTAR) – With summer travel plans heating up as the country continues to see vaccination numbers rise, many are eager to hit the road.

But what do you do if you’re fully vaccinated and your children are not?

“For anyone unvaccinated, the CDC is not recommending traveling,” said Donna Hallas, director of the pediatric nurse practitioner program at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing.

Hallas said car trips or vacations to outdoorsy places where you can limit contact to others is probably O.K.

But all children over age 3 must wear masks when in public, she said.

It’s not yet known when the vaccine will become available to children.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said in March that children will likely begin receiving COVID-19 vaccines in the fall.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, the nation’s top infectious disease expert said, “We will get children of high school age — 12 to 17 — to get vaccinated by the fall.”

Younger children will likely have to wait longer. Fauci predicted that those under the age of 12 may start receiving the COVID-19 vaccine “in the first part of the first quarter of 2022.”

Albany County coronavirus update, April 18

ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Albany County Executive Dan McCoy Sunday to report on the county’s efforts to administer the COVID vaccine and control the spread of the coronavirus.

As of Saturday, 48.4% of Albany County’s population has received at least the first dose, and 34.3% has been fully vaccinated. That compares to the statewide first dose vaccination rate of 40.2%, and full vaccination rate of 27%.

The County Executive announced that the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Albany County has now climbed to 23,364 to date, an increase of 70 new positive cases since Saturday. The five-day average for new daily positives has increased to 64.6 from 60. Albany County’s most recent 7-day average of percent positive rates increased to 2.9%, and the Capital Region’s is now at 2.3%.

Among the new cases of coronavirus, 39 reportedly had close contact with positive cases, 28 did not have clear sources of infection at this time, two reported traveling out of state, and one is a healthcare worker or resident of a congregate living setting.

Health officials say there are now 550 active cases in the county, up from 513 Saturday. The number of people under mandatory quarantine increased to 1,048 from 975. So far, 75,012 people have completed quarantine. Of those who completed quarantine, 22,814 of them had tested positive and recovered. That is an increase of 31 recoveries since Saturday.

There were six new hospitalizations reported overnight and 29 county residents are now hospitalized from the virus. There are currently seven patients in ICU’s, up from six Saturday. Sadly, there were two new COVID-related deaths reported – a man in his 60’s and a woman in her 70’s. The death toll for Albany County now stands at 371 since the outbreak began.

“We have sadly lost two more Albany County residents to COVID-19 and I send my condolences to their families and to all the families who have lost loved ones to the virus,” said County Executive McCoy. “We need to continue to move forward to protect our most vulnerable in the community and to keep the virus from taking lives. That means getting more shots into arms. Albany County is closing in on nearly 50% of our population having at least the first dose of the vaccine. We need to keep up that pace.”

04/18/2021: Our weekend of clouds continues

The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Jill Szwed.

Happy Sunday! Around the area we are waking up under cloudy skies. And there won’t be much change throughout the day. But very similar to yesterday, there will be a few bright spots from time to time. Temperatures will be seasonably cool too with highs ranging from the lower 50s to near 60°.

More clouds than sun and seasonably cool today.

An isolated shower can’t be ruled out this afternoon. Activity will be few and far between and will fizzle quickly this evening. A few showers, even an isolated storm is possible Monday afternoon. Overall our rain chances are fairly low over the next three days.

Monday afternoon Futurecast shows spotty shower activity.

Tuesday will be our first completely dry day since last Thursday. We will enjoy a mix of sun and clouds along with above-average temperatures in the 60s, except for the North Country and Adirondacks.

Nice day on Tuesday with highs in the 60s for most.

Our precipitation chances will be on the way back up Wednesday afternoon. A strong area of low pressure will bring more widespread showers and a few storms to the Capital Region.

Rain chances this week: There will be widespread activity on Wednesday.

Behind this system temperatures will turn much cooler again. Highs will struggle to climb through the 40s. It will be cold enough for scattered flurries. The chill won’t last long, though.

7 Day Forecast: A week of spring weather. Everything from warm temperatures, showers and storms, and flurries.
