Three Generations of Vaccinations | Podcast in Place #51 Alaska Teen Media Institute

    • News

When the Pfizer vaccine was approved for children ages 5 and older, Laura Norton-Cruz was relieved to be able to get her two young kids vaccinated.


And she knew the perfect place to take them; her mother’s birthing center where they were holding vaccine clinics. To make the experience even more comfortable for the kids, Laura’s father, a retired pediatric radiologist, administered the shots.


ATMI producers Ada Bjorkman and Madison Knutson spoke to all five family members to hear their different perspectives on the experience.


They also discuss communicating with other parents about getting the vaccine for their children, how misinformation disrupts the community, and what the kids are most looking forward to once they are fully vaccinated.


Hosted by Karl Cranston-Simmons.


Music by Devin Shreckengost and Kendrick Whiteman.
