A Conversation About the COVID-19 Vaccine: Just for the Child Care Workforce

A Conversation About the COVID-19 Vaccine: Just for the Child Care Workforce

Join GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students and the GA CEAL (Community Engagement Alliance Against COVID-19 Disparities) team aMorehouse School of Medicine for a conversation on the COVID-19 vaccine specific to the child care workforce with a panel of doctors, scientists, & your peers.

Members of the child care workforce, including early childhood educators and afterschool and youth development professionals, play an integral role in teaching and providing care for the state’s young children. These educators have worked tirelessly over the course of the pandemic to meet the needs of children and families. As the course of the pandemic has shifted and vaccines have become more readily available, questions and concerns remain.

We’ve received hundreds of questions from educators and look forward to providing a safe space for reflection and conversation as a panel of doctors, scientists, and your peers share their experiences and answer your questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.
