  • 1.  Vaccinations and COVID-19

    Posted 26 days ago
    As we all know, health care access was restricted for just about everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic. With that being said, I would like to know how other centers, schools, facilities and agencies are dealing with childhood vaccinations. I know most places require vaccinations with some exceptions. This is not a question about whether or not TO vaccinate but rather how children are vaccinated. Since so many schools and centers closed and doctors offices and health departments restricted access to reduce the spread of COVID-19, who encourages/reminds parents to take their children for regular check ups and those who were seen through tele-health visits when/ how were their vaccinations updated? How do you track/ maintain up to date records? Are children being allowed to attend school without check ups and updated records? What temporary or interim policy has your school put in place to monitor/track updates for records? Hearing and Vision screenings?  For schools or centers that have closed are you keepIng records up to date While you are closed? I'm just curious how centers, homes and schools are handling vaccinations.
