Students and the COVID-19 Vaccine

On the top of the back to school checklist for this fall is how to manage students and the COVID-19 vaccine, as it becomes increasingly available for school-age children.

McLane Middleton’s Linda Johnson will moderate a webinar with colleagues Brian Garrett and Susan Schorr covering practical steps for how schools can comply with student vaccination requirements and guidance.

We will discuss requests for exemption or accommodation; updates to policies, health forms, and other foundational documents; vaccines for students once on campus, including for international students who may have been vaccinated in their home countries; and student and parent vaccine hesitancy. We will also touch on the updated guidance for employees and the COVID-19 vaccine.

We look forward to seeing you and addressing any questions you may have.

Program
Webinar - 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET
