Each year at this time, public health officials and healthcare providers remind parents to make sure their children’s immunizations are up to date before school starts. Even though COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down this year, the need to vaccinate kids and teens has not changed. In fact, it’s more important than ever.
Host Dr. Jonathan Fialkow examines why now is not the time to let your family’s immunizations slide with guests; Deepa Sharma, D.O., a family medicine physician with Baptist Health; and Lillian Rivera, RN, MSN, Ph.D, consultant to the Florida Department of Health on COVID-19 response.
