In this special episode of Ear Snacks, Andrew & Polly explore what kids know (and don’t know) about the Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine now available in the U.S. for children age 5-11. We prepare for the experience of getting a shot with Child Life Specialist Rose Tandeta (UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland) and explain how an mRNA vaccine works by sharing a hilarious pie analogy from Laurel Bristow (MSc, Control of Infectious Diseases).
Here at Ear Snacks we love learning and sharing, and we hope all of our immune systems can learn how to keep our bodies healthy and not share crazy pies with our neighbors! Thanks to our friends Twyla, Dash, Ani, Izzy, Eliana, Quinn, Cora, and Jane and their parents for being on Ear Snacks.
