If you are interested in learning more about the COVID-19 vaccine for children, or are looking for ways to discuss the vaccine with your child/children, you may find the following resources from Johns Hopkins University (available in English, Spanish, and Arabic) and the CDC helpful. The American Academy of Pediatrics created a short video about how mRNA vaccines work available on YouTube.

On December 12, 2021, CHCCS hosted Dr. Danny Benjamin of the ABC Science Collaborative in a webinar regarding the latest science, strategies and research on COVID-19 and children's vaccines. If you missed it, here’s a link to the video recording.

We cannot thank you enough for your efforts and contributions and we look forward to putting them to great use!

Mission: Make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
