Christina Wells, MD, MPH and Santina Wheat MD, MPH discuss challenges and opportunities for vaccinating adolescent patients ages twelve to seventeen.  They share some of the most common conversations they are having with patients and their parents in this age group.

Learn how you can use every interaction with your patient as an opportunity to find out what families are thinking and to be able to find the real reason that they're worried or resisting the vaccine.  Then provide the appropriate information that might help them decide to vaccinate in the future.  

Additionally, Drs. Wells and Wheat will explore ideas for working with partners to get adolescent patients vaccinated in locations outside of the clinic.

Objectives:

-          Understand various reasons why 12 – 17-year-old patients & their parents are choosing to get or not get the COVID-19 vaccine 

-          Identify some of the logistical challenges clinics may face
