Last month, the Food and Drug Administration approved emergency use authorization of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 12 and up. That was a huge step in stopping the spread of COVID-19, but many parents, families, educators, and school staff have questions. When will all children be eligible for the vaccine? Is the vaccine safe for young people? Will my kids still need to wear a mask to school next year?
Join the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Washington State Department of Health, and Kaiser Permanente Washington for a conversation, hosted by students, about vaccinating our children and what families can expect next school year.
The panel will answer questions and discuss:
- The latest guidance from the Washington State Department of Health and how parents and families can stay up-to-date over the summer
- What families need to know about COVID-19, the vaccine, and how it affects children
- What parents and families of children under 12 need to know
- How safe it is for students to go back to in-person learning in the fall
- What parents and families of students with disabilities and health needs should know
- How parents and families can talk to their children today to address their concerns
