Children’s Healthcare Canada and ScienceUpFirst, are joining forces on February 23 for National Kids and Vaccines Day 2023.
ScienceUpFirst, an initiative of CASC, and Children’s Healthcare Canada are hosting a free national Kids and Vaccines Town Hall event to answer questions from kids, caregivers and educators about the importance and safety of routine vaccinations, as well as influenza and COVID-19 vaccines, as we continue to face a surge in infection caused by both.
This is the second annual event where healthcare leaders and experts come together from across disciplines to help move the needle (pun intended) and promote vaccine confidence for Canada’s children.
The discussion will include:
- Routine vaccinations for children (2 months to 5 years): critical for protection against a wide range of vaccine-preventable diseases. Catching up on routine childhood immunization and ensuring that coverage doesn’t slip, or remain low, must be a top priority for children’s healthcare professionals and parents as we look to our future.
- Influenza and COVID-19 vaccines, an important safe and effective method to combat these viral infections, especially in light of the current crisis in children’s healthcare.
