COVID Vaccines and Children

Pamela Simms-Mackey, MD explains how old you have to be to get the COVID vaccines.

Black doctors, nurses and researchers dispel misinformation and provide accessible facts about the #COVID#vaccines​ in this new living library of FAQ videos to help Black people with this important decision. More videos and voices will be added as new questions arise and information becomes available.

THE CONVERSATION #BetweenUsAboutUs​ is produced by KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation), a nonprofit organization focusing on national health issues (no affiliation with Kaiser Permanente), and presented by KFF’s Greater Than COVID public information initiative and the Black Coalition Against COVID (BCAC). Rhea Boyd, MD, MPH, a pediatrician and public health advocate, and Reed Tuckson, MD, Founding Member, BCAC, co-developed the series with KFF and BCAC.
