Having your child vaccinated will protect family members and friends from potentially catching COVID-19, especially those who may be at high risk.
Being vaccinated will help kids be kids. It will enable them to safely do more of the activities they enjoy, like attending birthday parties, playing sports, and spending time indoors with friends and family members.
Because of the highly contagious Delta variant and limited safety protocols in some regions, schools across the country have had to shut down due to an influx of COVID-19 cases. This chaos is harming your academic opportunity and social and emotional learning, as closures threaten our kids’ ongoing learning and development.
Keeping students, teachers, and staff safe at school should be one of our top priorities.
Students of color have been significantly harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Numerous studies conducted this past year have shown the widening disparities in academic performance among Black, Latinx, and American Indian/Alaska Native students as compared to your white peers.
Children of racial and ethnic minorities were twice as likely as white children to experience the death of a caregiver due to COVID-19.
Getting children of color vaccinated is the best way to protect them from COVID-19, ensure they can stay in school, and let them get back to the moments and people that they love.
