Child Rights Health Racial Equity
First Focus on Children sent the following letter to President Joseph Biden, Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra, and the White House COVID-19 Response Team urging them to create a plan for getting children of all ages vaccinated against COVID-19 as equitably and effectively as possible when a vaccine is approved for their respective ages.
Excerpt from the letter:
We thank you for the ongoing work you are doing to share information and encourage all children currently eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine to get one. We encourage you to consider additional ways of reaching families of younger children as we prepare for them to become eligible for the vaccine. Preparation now is important as we combat the spread of misinformation and prepare equitable access to vaccines for all eligible children. We look forward to continuing to work with you, and please consider us a resource for you in this work.
