Children and COVID-19: Strategies and Partnerships for Vaccination
COVID-19 vaccination is critical to keeping children, schools, and communities safe. With the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine now available to children ages 5 to 11, state officials, pediatric providers, schools, community clinics, and other immunization partners are working to build vaccine confidence, engage communities, and ensure that vaccines are available in places that are safe, convenient, and trusted. Join the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy and the National Academy for State Health Policy for a discussion on how immunization partners are working together to address challenges and promote equitable vaccination access for children in a variety of settings.
