Do you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine for your elementary school-aged children? On behalf of all local elementary school families, Riverside's PTO is convening a virtual town hall to help answer questions parents and caregivers might have about the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The interdisciplinary panel includes two experts from the Riverside community -- a public health policy expert and a scientist -- plus the Princeton Health Officer and the Vice Chair of the Princeton Board of Health. The vaccine has been given authorization for emergency use in children aged 5-11.
