Play • 15 min

Register for the next Provider COVID-19 Town Hall on Thursday, December 3 from 6-7:30 p.m. MST: 

Today on Charting Pediatrics, we will talk about what to expect from the public release of the COVID-19 vaccine, what it means for pediatrics and facts you can begin sharing with parents in your practice to arm them with knowledge and confidence in this vaccine.

Major breakthroughs have developed since we last visited the topic of Operation Warp Speed and the race for a COVID-19 vaccine. Pfizer’s vaccine candidate has shown to be 95 percent effective and Moderna’s has been similar at 94.5 percent, rivaling some of the most potent vaccines that we have. With vaccine candidates showing robust immune response there is mounting anticipation for a vaccination that could bring an end to the pandemic. This news comes as community spread of the virus is raging and hospitalizations have surged across the United States. 

Sean O’Leary, MD is our guest for this episode. Dr. O'Leary is an Infectious Disease physician at Children’s Colorado and Director of the Colorado Pediatric Practice-Based Research Network. Sean is also a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics and can regularly be found quoted in publications like the New York Times.
