Covid Vaccines Now Available for Ages 12 and Up!

All children ages 12 and up are now eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine!  This is wonderful news and puts us one step closer to controlling this pandemic and getting our kids and families back to normal life.  Clinical trials of the Pfizer vaccine among kids ages 12-15 showed that the vaccine is safe and effective for this age group.  None of the children who got the Pfizer vaccine during the clinical trial got sick with COVID-19.  We do not yet have the vaccine to give at our Timber Lane offices.  Your child can receive the vaccine at a health department clinic, local pharmacy such as Walgreen's or Kinney's, or at a school clinic.  You can view and sign up for a vaccine appointment on the Vermont Department of Health website here.
 
The Vermont American Academy of Peditatrics and the Vermont Department of Health are presenting a series of online town halls with local pediatricians to answer questions parents may have about the Covid vaccine.  You can find the links for these town halls here.
 
If you have specific questions about the Covid vaccine and your child's health, call our office and we will set up a time for you to talk with your child's pediatric provider.
 

If you have general questions about the Covid vaccine for your child or yourself, check out these wonderful resources:

1) An FAQ for parents from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) here.

2) Vaccine information from Dr. Paul Offit and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, which you can access here.

How Do I Talk to My Child About Racial Bias and Recent Protests?

Here are two valuable articles on how to start and continue meaningful conversations with your children about racial bias and the recent protests sweeping the country.  First, advice from the American Academy of Pediatrics, "Talking to Children About Racial Bias."  Second, a timely article from the New York Times, "Talking to Kids About Racism, Early and Often."
