Sunrise Interviews

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – Dr. Nimisha Amin, a local pediatrician, joined 17 News at Sunrise today to discuss the recent changes to mask requirements in schools and the impact they could have.

Dr. Amin also discussed whether there will be a COVID-19 vaccine for elementary-aged children this school year.
