Many families are now making decisions about whether they should get the children in their lives vaccinated against Covid.  The following opportunity is being shared to allow members of our community to hear from an expert in children’s health.

Because parents, families and educators have new questions and concerns due to the continued increasing spread of Covid-19 throughout our schools and community, Dr. Stephen J. Turkovich, MD, will offer valuable information, via a free webinar, on Monday, December 20, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Dr. Turkovich is vice president and chief medical officer at Oishei Children’s Hospital, and serves as a clinical assistant professor of pediatrics at the University at Buffalo.

Dr. Turkovich will discuss the most current information surrounding the virus and vaccines, discuss what parents need to know for their children and directly answer questions about COVID-19. During this webinar, he will also discuss the new Omicron variant, the appropriate ages for children to become vaccinated, how to respond to challenges for children in school, and how to keep the entire family safe.

Representatives from the Parent Network will inform parents about the “vaccinate, educate, graduate” vaccine incentive provided by New York State, and the collaboration of the YMCA and Lyft to offer free transportation to/from COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
