Pediatrician Provider Resources

As parents’ most trusted source of information on vaccines, pediatric healthcare professionals play a critical role in helping parents/guardians understand the importance of COVID-19 vaccination and assuring them that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Currently, children 5 years and older are eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, but we anticipate approval for other COVID-19 vaccines and younger children in the coming months.

Your strong recommendation is critical for vaccine acceptance. Tell parents/guardians how important COVID-19 vaccines are to protecting their children’s health.

Remind parents that after their family is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, they may start to do some things they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

Even if you are not administering COVID-19 vaccines, you can help parents/guardians feel confident in choosing to get their children vaccinated against COVID-19 by addressing their questions and assuring them of the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.

The materials in this toolkit will help you share clear and accurate information about COVID-19 vaccines when starting or continuing conversations with parents/guardians, as well as information for those who choose not to vaccinate their child.
