The CDC has just recommended the first COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 through 11. Routine and recommended childhood vaccines, like the COVID-19 vaccine, protect young people from serious and life-threatening diseases. Pfizer’s data showed the vaccine is safe and 90 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infections in this age group.
As Hawai‘i rolls out their keiki vaccination campaign, we encourage afterschool, education, and community leaders, as well as anyone who wants to become a more confident ambassador for health literacy and vaccine confidence to join us for a talk story with the Hawai‘i Department of Health. We’ll learn more about COVID-19 vaccinations for keiki and answer your questions. This session covers:
- Accessible talking points for common questions and persistent misinformation
- Strategies for empathetic and impactful engagement
- Social media hygiene and critical media literacy
