Children and COVID-19: Strategies and Partnerships for Vaccination

November 17, 2021 | 4:30 – 5:30 pm ET

 

Please join the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy and the National Academy for State Health Policy for a webinar, “Children and COVID-19: Strategies and Partnerships for Vaccination,” on Wednesday, November 17th from 4:30 - 5:30 PM ET. Join us for a discussion on how state officials, pediatric providers, schools, community clinics, and other partners are working together to vaccinate children ages 5 to 11 against COVID-19.

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, immunization partners are working to build vaccine confidence, engage parents and communities, and ensure that vaccines are available in places that are safe, convenient, and trusted. 

This webinar will feature a discussion with White House officials, as well as a panel of state leaders, pediatric providers, school officials, and leaders from community health centers to discuss how they have approached planning and partnerships, and how they are addressing logistical challenges to vaccinating children.   

Speakers and panelists include:

  • Cameron Webb, MD, JD, Senior Policy Advisor for COVID-19 Equity, White House COVID-19 Response Team 
  • Brandy Emily, DNP, RN, Health Equity Branch Chief, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
  • Deborah Greenhouse, MD, FAAP, Pediatrician, Columbia, South Carolina
  • Alycia Meriweather, Deputy Superintendent, Detroit Public Schools Community District
  • Christian Ramers, MD, MPH, Assistant Medical Director for Research & Special Populations, Family Health Centers of San Diego
     

The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy and the National Academy for State Health Policy would like to thank the Commonwealth Fund for their generous support for this project.
