PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — With in-person learning approaching, many are concerned about the covid-19 vaccine.

Dr. Eliza Bakken, an associate professor of pediatrics at Oregon Health & Science University, joined AM Extra Wednesday to tell families why the flu should still be a concern even during the age of COVID-19.
