Better Together: A Candid Conversation on COVID-19 Vaccines in Pediatrics and Young Adults
Since March 2020, nearly 6.4 million children have contracted COVID-19. The ongoing pandemic is a reminder of the importance of vaccination, however, more than half of parents demonstrate vaccine hesitancy. This webinar will answer some key questions such as:
- Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?
- What are the side effects?
- Why should my child get the vaccine?
- How will the vaccine interact with my child’s chronic illness?
- Who can I trust with correct information?
In addition, a panel of renowned Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) pediatric specialists will share first-hand knowledge, experiences, and participate in a live Q&A session.
A breakout session for Spanish-speaking families will be provided as well as a session for Healthcare providers which will offer information on vaccine hesitancy, public health resources, and best practices to effectively deliver COVID-19 vaccine information to patients and families.
