COVID-19 vaccines are life-saving vaccines.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all children and adolescents 5 years of age and older who do not have contraindications using a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use for their age.

Research trials have shown COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective against severe COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and death.

Family Voices is partnering with the School of Medicine at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, to provide current, reliable, family-friendly information about COVID19 vaccination to families of youth and children with special health care needs, especially those for whom vaccination access has been challenged by chronic health care disparities.

The Vaccine Outreach Project provides information and resources through the Family Voices network to support vaccination efforts in communities nationwide.

Family Voices is providing technical assistance to the Family-to-Family Health Information Centers in Maryland (Parents’ Place of Maryland), Virginia (Center for Family Involvement), and Delaware (Parent Information Center of Delaware).  Each of these three Family-to-Family Health Information Centers will be providing intensive vaccination supports in their states, including in-person and virtual training and support.
