Community Health Webinar: Pediatric COVID Vaccination
Apr 25, 2022 5:30 PM
Vaccines are our best hope to end the COVID pandemic. COVID vaccine is available for children age 5 and up, and boosters are now authorized for those 12 years and older. Vaccines for children age 6 months and up may be authorized next. Marin County is among the most highly-vaccinated areas in the nation. But many questions and concerns remain when it comes to vaccinating our children.
In this presentation, our specialists will discuss:
- Why children and teens should get vaccinated
- Upcoming COVID vaccinations for 2-4 year olds
- How parents and caregivers can determine if toddlers are having side effects
- Helpful tips to support children 6 months-4 years during their vaccine
- Booster recommendation for children under 18
- Where and when to get vaccinated
- Vaccine requirements in schools
- The changing rules of masking in schools and socially
- Variants and levels of contagion
- Emergency Room and clinical treatment
- Immunocompromised children
- Confronting denial and separating fact from fiction
We’ll also have time for Q&A at the end of the presentation.
