As eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines continues to expand, families have many questions about how to best keep their children safe and healthy at school and home. Please join the American Hospital Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association as pediatricians and hospital leaders discuss how doctors can work with parents to build trust in the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines for children, and offer key strategies to protect kids and keep them in school. Panelists also share their insights into how hospitals can partner with local schools, school boards, PTAs and teachers to build confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine.
