Doctors Discuss Children’s Vaccines
If you’re a parent, you likely have a lot of questions about your children’s vaccines. Watch Dr. Paul Offit, Director of the Vaccine Education Center, and fellow experts discuss common vaccine-related topics including potential for long-term side effects, vaccination while breastfeeding, why we give vaccines for diseases we don’t see, the contagiousness of COVID-19, and much more.
The Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (VEC at CHOP) is composed of scientists, physicians, mothers, and fathers devoted to the study and prevention of infectious diseases. The Center was launched in October 2000 to provide accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date information about vaccines and the diseases they prevent. If you have any questions about your child’s health, please contact your child’s doctor.
