Regional Medical Director
The San Diego Immunization Coalition will offer a new webinar series for fall 2020 to help local providers and immunization partners address vaccine hesitancy. The first topic will provide context by reviewing the 3Cs, which can help frame the common reasons why patients/consumers are reluctant to get vaccines. The presentation will then offer strategies and best practices to minimize vaccine hesitancy and increase vaccine uptake.
WEBINAR: KICK THE FLU 2020
Wed, September 30, 2020 from 11 AM - 12 PM
Due to COVID-19, the San Diego Immunization Coalition’s Annual Kick the Flu Summit 2020 will be conducted as a two-part webinar via Zoom.
This 16th annual influenza educational event convenes medical, health, and community service providers from both public and private sectors to share information, collaborate, and strategize about how to promote and increase the rate of flu vaccinations throughout San Diego County.
The 2020-2021 influenza season presents new challenges and considerations for vaccinations during the COVID-19 pandemic. This forum will allow attendees to ask questions and discuss issues and concerns.
• State at least one morbidity/mortality result from the 2019-2020 flu season in San Diego County
• List at least one current flu recommendation from the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)
• Identify available flu products for the 2020-2021 flu season

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.
