The winter months are flu season, and many families and ECE professionals are seeing rising cases of COVID-19 and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in their communities.
To support child care providers and early learning professionals, we are sharing a few resources with helpful information for you and the families in your care:
- Child Care Aware of America recently hosted a webinar with Dr. Katherine Fleming-Dutra from the Centers for Disease Control who discussed flu season, rates of COVID-19 and RSV, the new COVID-19 booster, and how ECE professionals can help promote vaccines to ensure healthy child care
- Vaccines.gov has a variety of resources and information available to help with learning more about available vaccines and finding vaccination locations
- Sesame Street’s article, Helping Children Prepare for Shots, can help parents and families navigate vaccinations and support their children through anxiety related to medical appointments
