Children 12 and older can now receive the COVID-19 vaccine according to CDC guidelines. Dawn Moore, chief pharmacy officer for the Community Health Network joined us today with what parents and young people need to know about the vaccine. 

Community Health Network finds that some kids are eager to be vaccinated, but parents are hesitant; or parents want their children vaccinated, but teens are hesitant. Plus, they are likely to be on social media, where there is a lot of misinformation.

There is a schedule of vaccine clinics taking place at their partner schools all summer long.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Top of mind for so many of us right now is all things COVID-19, the vaccine and how it affects us.

Dawn Moore, chief pharmacy officer for the Community Health Network joined “Indy Style” on Tuesday to explain more about how they’re helping more people get vaccinated every day.

Moore also talked about the latest update of the FDA recommendation to pause distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Here is more from Moore:

(WISH) – The American Medical Association (AMA) is urging people to get a flu shot this year.

Governor Eric Holcomb shared a video of himself getting vaccinated. He tweeted that getting the shot is one of the best things you can do to help protect yourself and others from getting sick.

The AMA is warning flu season will clash with the COVID-19 pandemic. The medical group is recommending everyone 6-months and older to get vaccinated against the flu.

Flu activity increases in October and most often peaks between December and February, but it can last as late as May.

AMA President Dr. Susan Bailey said it’s more important than ever to get the shot as the flu shares many similar symptoms to coronavirus and to preserve scarce health care resources during the pandemic.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has created an online tool to help patients find nearby places to get vaccinated.
