Dr. Timothy Dewhirst, a professor in U of G’s Department of Marketing and Consumer Studies, contributed a commentary to the Toronto Star about the many vague explanations about how vaccine mandates apply to those under 12 years old.

Those in public health and corporate leadership positions have been relatively quiet in advising on questions about children who are not old enough to receive approved COVID-19 vaccines, he wrote.
