SDIC and Project Concern International present a 3-part webinar series to help service providers give accurate information about the COVID-19 vaccines to clients/patients in clinical, public health, and social service settings. These one-hour educational events can help make a difference when talking with others who are hesitant about the COVID-19 vaccines due to misinformation, myths, fears, and general gaps in knowledge.
The webinars will be staggered by day and time over three weeks so that those with standing meetings and obligations will have an opportunity to attend. Attendees can register for any session, regardless of attendance in prior webinars of the series.
Following Part 1 of learning the facts of COVID-19 vaccination, this presentation webinar will next highlight skills to use existing resources to help convey your immunization talking points by using visual aids, campaign messages, and language vetted by health and marketing professionals.

PREVIOUS GENERAL MEETINGS
This topic and date was ultimately the last in-person general meeting for SDIC. The combination of COVID-19 and interagency policy will restrict the group from gathering further. All meetings will be remote indefinitely.
If you have information to share or would like to be considered as a future presenter on the topics, please email Eugene.Beronilla@sdcounty.ca.gov.
These are examples of statements you can make to your family members, friends, co-workers, and patients.
"Pregnant women should get a flu vaccine at any time during a pregnancy, and then a Tdap vaccination at the start of the third trimester."
The CDC highly recommends that women get Tdap (to protect against whooping cough) between 27-36 weeks of pregnancy. Other vaccines, like the flu shot, can be given before or during pregnancy. Click here for more information.
