MSNBC contributor Kathy Kay expressed shock Thursday that her children are not interested in additional vaccinations against COVID-19.

After watching a clip of a doctor describing how busy hospitals will be in late 2022, Kay described her personal frustration on “Morning Joe.”

“You’d think the country would respond by saying, ‘OK, we’ll make sure we’re all up to speed with our vaccines” she told fellow MSNBC contributor Dr. Zach Emanuel.

However, she recounted an unexpected experience with her own family.

MSNBC contributor Kathy Kay claims her own children refused to get additional COVID vaccinations before the holidays.

“But last night I had a weird conversation with my 22-year-old and 16-year-old and I said, ‘Okay, I signed you up for the COVID updates, you’re both back for the holidays, you’re going to get boosters,’ and they both said, ‘No, we don’t want to. We have enough vaccines and we don’t think we need them,” Kay said. “I was kind of shocked and horrified.”

“But is the response that you’re seeing from young people right now that they think it’s over and that they don’t need any more vaccines?” she asked Emanuel.

Dr. Emanuel responded by saying how Covid-19 vaccines don’t prevent virus transmission, but prevent serial disease.

“Yes, but I would say, you know, we continue to think that vaccines will prevent you from getting COVID. They do not prevent getting COVID. What they prevent is serious illness, hospitalization and death,” he said. “And young people think they’re invincible — and yes, they’re at less risk from COVID, but it’s not zero risk.”

He proposed two other methods to completely prevent transmission.

“There are only two things that can really prevent the transmission of Covid virus” suggested Emanuel. “One is a good mask, an N95 mask, and wearing it, especially in crowded situations in airplanes and transportation, and the other is better indoor ventilation.”
