In time for back-to-school health screenings, the American Hospital Association (AHA) Aug. 25 released an infographic
on strategies that clinicians and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have employed to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations among children. The takeaways are culled from a July webinar with pediatric infectious disease specialists and the CDC. Access the webinar and other AHA vaccine confidence content, including digital toolkits and videos, here.
The people working in hospitals and health systems are trusted sources of information. Answering questions, sharing personal reasons for getting vaccinated, and respecting concerns of those not yet ready to get their vaccine are all powerful ways the health care field can help their communities stay healthy.
Recent polling indicates half of adults intend to get an annual COVID-19 booster if available. Click here
