WATCH: Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccination (ages 5-11) & Duchenne (Webinar Recording)

On November 5, 2021, PPMD invited Drs. Tim Cripe and Tim Franson back for another COVID-19 vaccine webinar to provide updates on the new pediatric approval and what it means for the Duchenne community. Our panelists shared important information on vaccine development, impact of COVID-19 on children, vaccine safety in the 5-11 age group, and additional context about third vs. booster doses.
