Mandates, boosters and pediatric vaccines: How to successfully manage the next phase of COVID-19 vaccination

Thursday, October 21st, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

If the mood of the initial COVID-19 vaccine rollout felt exuberant, the sentiment heading into fall feels more daunting against the backdrop of the Delta variant and ongoing vaccine hesitancy. Healthcare organizations need to manage those challenges while also figuring out effective ways to administer boosters, navigate vaccine mandates, and provide vaccines to kids 12 and over — and likely kids under 12 soon.

Luckily, we can lean on best practices from this past spring and summer to successfully tackle the tasks ahead. In this webinar, physician leaders and COVID-19 vaccination experts will share lessons from earlier efforts to ensure equitable, timely and efficient vaccine distribution in the coming months.

Key learning points:

  • Best practices for adapting to changing guidance and policies
  • Actionable strategies for overcoming vaccine hesitancy among healthcare workers, adults and parents
  • Methods for incentivizing primary care and pediatric practices to vaccinate against COVID-19, especially in vaccine deserts
