Key strategies to promote childhood vaccination

Sessions will meet virtually 12-1 pm, every other Wednesday beginning Sept 7th.

9/7/2022

With new COVID-19 variants emerging and a winter surge expected, vaccination of people of all ages is critical to protect the health of our communities.  As of mid-July, only 22.7% of children 5-11 years old and 44.1% of teens 12-19 in New Hampshire are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 according to NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  In addition, dips in rates of vaccination against other serious childhood illnesses may risk resurgence of other diseases.  This series will examine the importance, safety and efficacy of COVID-19 and other vaccines in protecting individuals and communities; discuss effective communication strategies to increase vaccine uptake; and identify evidence-based COVID-19 vaccine resources and best practice information to support increased vaccination.  The series is offered by Dartmouth Health in collaboration with NH DHHS.
