Pediatricians and other experts answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Pediatrician Ilan Shapiro, MD explains what it was like for his kids to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
We went all together. It was me, my wife, and my kids. And, they knew, you know, that they were going to get their shots and they understood what was kind of the process. I made sure that I show them pictures. That way, you know, even though that they have never been to that office, they would understand what was going to be the process.
And I think that made a huge difference for them. That way, when they were actually sitting down, the first thing that my kid actually asked me was “please take a picture because I want to show it to my friends and take video because I want to share this with my family.”
