Wen said the data is "much less compelling" than for adults.

When it comes to the second booster, the picture gets a bit more complicated.

Wen told CNN's Deblina Chakraborty that the decision about who should get a booster and how often is not straightforward, because scientists and public health experts are not always in agreement on the purpose of Covid-19 vaccinations.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a first booster for all adults and second booster for those most at risk.

In the United States, anyone over the age of 50 is currently eligible for and encouraged to get two booster doses.

There are some exceptions: Younger people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised can also get the second booster, because they are at greater risk of severe illness or death if they contract Covid-19, according to the CDC.

In England, the current plan is to offer second boosters to people 50 and over as well as younger people who are at risk, front line health and social care workers or those who care for or live with an immunosuppressed person.

According to the WHO, only 28% of older people and 37% of health care workers in low-income countries have received their primary course of vaccines and most have not received booster doses.

A: According to the US CDC, people who contract Covid-19 should isolate themselves for five days before returning to public settings -- such as schools -- with a well-fitting mask for the next five days.

If your child was exposed to someone with Covid-19, but is up to date with all vaccinations, no isolation is required unless they develop symptoms.

Long Covid could be the "next public health disaster"

There's no test for long Covid.

But millions of people across the world suffer from the condition, which researchers say has the potential to be "the next public health disaster in the making."

In the US, between 7.7 million to 23 million are thought to have long Covid.

The Biden administration released two reports last week as part of a whole-government initiative to prevent, detect and treat long Covid.

You're in a "good place" with Covid

If you are up to date on all your Covid-19 vaccinations, don't have any health conditions and are under the age of 60, then you're very unlikely to become severely ill with Covid-19, according to data from New York's largest health provider.
