NBC medical correspondent John Torres was asked about concerns regarding respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and why it is hitting some kids hard while not hitting others nearly as badly.

Torres said the medical community doesn’t know why it is happening but said there are tips for protecting kids. Among the tips?

“Avoid physical interaction with unvaccinated individuals.”

It is strange advice considering there is no RSV vaccine. NBC instead suggested kids receive the COVID vaccine as well as the flu vaccine to combat RSV.


  1. This is laughable. If NBC’s thinks their audience is no more educated on vaccines than to put out a statement like that, if I was their audience( I only am when at a relative’s house that insists I listen when in their home) I would be deeply insulted. Of course, that’s why I usually try to keep out of earshot of their “reporting”.
