Welcome to the Spring 2022 COVID-19 update. In this four-part webinar series you will hear from national COVID-19 experts Dr. Peter Lin, Dr. Vivien Brown and Dr. Allison McGeer. They will provide healthcare professionals with the latest update on COVID-19, the vaccines and the answers to the questions they are getting in practice.

In the first webinar in this series, the panel provided a review of COVID-19 across the age spectrum. They started with a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on children and the evolving role of immunization in this age group. They reviewed the benefits and risk considerations for COVID-19 immunization in adolescents and young adults. For the middle age group, they reviewed the impact of comorbidities and being immunocompromised on COVID-19 and vaccine effectiveness. Finally, they review the impact of COVID-19 and the importance of protection in the older age group. The goal is to provide the viewer with some key answers to questions that they see frequently in their practices.
