Community Health Webinar: Pediatric COVID Vaccination

April 25 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 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.

Please submit questions in advance to Jennifer.Rienks@marinhealthcare.org.
