5/18 Message to the COVID-19 Community Corps:
Last week, the Pfizer vaccine became available for adolescents 12 through 15 years of age – a big next step in our mission to get America vaccinated and keep us all protected.
Tomorrow, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy will host a roundtable discussion for parent-focused trusted messenger groups to uplift the collective efforts already underway to address adolescent and parent vaccine confidence and to ask these groups to commit to efforts in their own networks.
Have a question about vaccine outreach to parents? Submit your question here for the roundtable event.
The goal of this call is to provide and facilitate knowledge sharing, to activate new trusted messengers and groups in their communities, and to share a call to action for how we'll overcome this pandemic.
Trusted messenger groups will receive latest scientific and medical updates, toolkits, and resources to support vaccine confidence efforts. The discussion will include parent advocacy groups, educators, bloggers, youth groups, faith leaders, and media groups.
We look forward to you joining this conversation.
The HHS COVID-19 Community Corps Team
