Vaccine safety for young children LA Public Health

    • Government

In June of 2022, the Food and Drug Administration approved COVID-19 vaccines for young children age 6 months to 5 years old. Yet only 12% of children age 6 months to 4 years have received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Disparities exist among children of color, with only 6% of Black children and 5% of Latino children in LA County receiving at least one dose, compared to 22% of Asian children, 19% of White children, and 15% of American Indian and Alaska Native children. Dr. Nava Yeganeh, Medical Director of Vaccine Preventable Disease Control in the Acute Communicable Disease Control Program in the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, joins to discuss vaccine safety and how families can access COVID-19 vaccines and boosters for their children.
