Moving the Needle on Kids’ COVID-19 Vaccines: A Conversation with Medical Expert Parents

October 18, 2022

As vaccine uptake remains low among children, and with the recent authorization of updated booster shots for children five and older, the COVID-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project convened a webinar aimed at addressing parents’ lingering questions about COVID-19 vaccines. The panelists – including pediatricians to epidemiologists – brought their perspectives as parents along with their medical expertise for an open dialogue aimed at building trust and increasing awareness about the importance of keeping children up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations.

Panelists included:

  • Dr. Uché Blackstock, Founder and CEO of Advancing Health Equity
  • Dr. Katelyn Jetelina, Founder and Author of Your Local Epidemiologist
  • Dr. Ilan Shapiro, Chief Health Correspondent and Medical Affairs Officer, AltaMed
