Vaccines have done more to save lives in the past 100 years than any other medical accomplishment.

The COVID-19 vaccines will prevent hundreds of thousands of children and adults from becoming very sick or dying from this virus.

That’s why Weiss Pediatric Care is encouraging everyone to get the vaccine when it is available to them.   When it comes to children our best hope is that the vaccine may be available for certain age groups before the 2021-22 school year begins.

Here’s what Dr. Weiss wants you to know about the COVID-19 Vaccine:

“COVID-19 can be a 'silent' disease that can spread easily to those we meet, talk with, and spend time with. It has been and continues to be a killer of people of all ages. This battle is far from over. We can't afford to take unnecessary chances with exposing others we love, and care about, to such a dangerous pathogen. The COVID vaccine is our best and only solution at this critical time in history.”

We trust the science and research that support the recommendation for COVID vaccine for all.  Yet we know that parents often have questions and want to do their own research before deciding about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Using Google to find answers to important questions can lead to information that is confusing and inaccurate.  We encourage everyone to make an informed decision using information that is based in science.

Here are a few places we turn to for trustworthy information about the COVID -19 vaccine.
