MNAAP Members Voice Support for 5-11 COVID Vaccine

November 22, 2021

When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made the Nov. 2 landmark announcement recommending that eligible 5-11-year-olds receive the COVID-19 vaccine, MNAAP members were at the ready to offer their support and guidance to parents and families.

MNAAP President Sheldon Berkowitz, MD, FAAP, along with members Krishnan Subrahmanian, MD, FAAP; Andrea Singh, MD, FAAP; and Robert Jacobson, MD, FAAP were all quoted in news coverage across the state:

Several MNAAP members answered the call from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to submit short video message to share with Minnesota families. The videos were used to create outreach and education:

COVID-19 Vaccines and Kids: What Parents Should Know (Featuring Drs. Andrea Singh, Jordan Marmet, Gigi Chawla, Madeleine Gagnon, Sheldon Berkowitz, Eileen Crespo, and Nathan Chomilo)

COVID-19 Vaccines and Kids: What Pediatricians Are Saying (Featuring Drs. Gigi Chawla, Jordan Marmet, Judy Wiltse, Nathan Chomilo, and Andrea Singh)

Feel free to share these videos through your social media channels, or use other outreach materials in this toolkit prepared by MDH to help with patient education.
