Dr. Shaili Rajput on the COVID vaccine for children
“Our job as parents and as pediatricians is to protect children and to ensure their safety, their health and their well being,” said OPS Member Shaili Rajput, MD, MPH. “And in this age, in these times right now, I can’t think of a greater way to do that than vaccinating your children.”
The COVID vaccine for 5- to 11-year-olds was approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this month, and Oregon kids are beginning to be vaccinated. Dr. Rajput spoke with and Oregon Public Broadcasting on Nov. 15, answering common parent questions about the vaccine. See the full interview here.
