COR 01.18.22: Follow up Conference on Covid-19 - Treatment and Vaccines for the Youngest Children

January 18, 2022

Data from the American Academy of Pediatrics show as of November 11th, over 6.6 million children have tested positive for COVID-19 since the onset of the pandemic. Everyone 5 years and older is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, yet vaccination coverage among children and adolescents is lower than in older groups. 

This session will provide a follow-up to the October 2021 session describing how COVID-19 affects children and the role of the COVID vaccine in protection against disease and hospitalization and to help practitioners answer the question from parents: What can I do to keep my child safe from COVID-19? 

This is a live webinar hosted via the Webex platform taking place Tuesday, January 18, 2022 from 7:30 - 8:45 AM EST.
