Maternal vaccinations before, during and after the COVID-19 Pandemic: How policy makers can equitably protect our nations mothers and babies

The Adult Vaccine Access Coalition, The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs, and Trust for America’s Health host a virtual briefing on April 15, 2021 from 2:00pm-3:00pm ET.

Briefing Details:

Among developed nations, the United States has shockingly high rates of infant and maternal mortality. Although maternal immunizations—including for influenza, Tdap and COVID-19—can save lives and improve quality of life for both parent and child, they are not accessible to everyone. Join our virtual briefing on April 15 to find out how policymakers can help move the nation toward increased, equitable rates of vaccination for pregnant people and their babies. Speakers will discuss the importance of maternal vaccinations in both the age of COVID-19 and prior, disparities in maternal vaccinations for women of color and the consequences and how access/hesitancy impact these vaccination rates.
