This Around the Table discussion will focus on children and the COVID-19 vaccines. Guest panelist Dr. Peter J. Hotez, Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine and Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology & Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, Co-director of the Texas Children’s Center for Vaccine Development (CVD) and Texas Children’s Hospital Endowed Chair of Tropical Pediatrics, will examine why it is important to vaccinate children, what can be done before the vaccines are authorized for all, and how we know that the vaccines are safe. At a time of increased infection rates among children and adults due to the COVID-19 Delta variant, this discussion is critically important.

Around the Table, a quarterly series of roundtable discussions, focuses on relevant health equity issues and offers tested, actionable solutions. Featuring Dr. Judith A. Salerno, President of NYAM and Dr. Wayne J. Riley, Board Chair of NYAM, President of SUNY Downstate, with a rotating list of expert guest panelists, each program defines the issue, shares information, answers questions and provides action items for the viewer to take.

A key feature of the program will be a “What can I do?” segment at the end of the discussion. These action items will also be shared with attendees and the public following the event on NYAM’s website.
