Talk to your pediatrician.
If you are unsure about getting your child vaccinated against COVID-19, make it a point to talk to your doctor or pediatrician this week about the vaccine. If you still feel unsure after that conversation, ask them if they can get you legitimate reading materials on the vaccine.
For parents who want to speak to a physician about getting their child a COVID vaccine but who do not have access to a primary care provider, Partnership Health Center encourages them to contact the clinic about scheduling an appointment for a consultation with a medical provider. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, PHC’s services are open to all, regardless of ability to pay. Community members can call 406-258-4789 to learn more about these services and schedule an appointment.
Follow the health department on social media.
The health department frequently shares links to articles and information from the nation's most respected health institutions on child vaccinations. You can also share this information within your own network to encourage other families you know to get their children vaccinated.
Look for information only in legitimate places.
A lot of blogs attempt to look like legitimate news sites on social media nowadays. This can make navigating information on vaccines difficult. Go straight to the source if you need information. Talk to your doctor, go on your health department's website, go to the CDC's website, or the website of a renowned health institute such as Johns Hopkins Medicine.
