Indiana Health Leaders Monitoring Rare Diseases Related to Children Who Get COVID-19

“We believe the vaccine will be protective for this, although it’s new enough that the vaccine has been approved and it’s uncommon enough that we don’t have great data on that,” Dr. Sutter said. While these cases remain rare in Indiana, health officials urge patients to mitigate their child’s risk of this disease by getting them vaccinated once they are eligible. Source

Allen County Health Commissioner Dr. Matthew Sutter is also watching out for this rare disease in northeast Indiana. He shares he has personally seen a case involving a child who developed MIS-C shortly after testing positive for COVID-19. None of the cases in Indiana were fatal, according to Dr. Box.

“They can be very serious,” Dr. Sutter said. “In fact, there’s been fatalities, and they’re directly caused by COVID-19 infection.” Indiana Health Commissioner Kristina Box announced Wednesday the department would begin publishing data on the number of these cases. According to Indiana’s COVID-19 dashboard, about two thirds of patients who have developed MIS-C are male. The average age for these confirmed cases is just under 10 years.
