PatientPoint and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have partnered on a program to educate visitors to pediatrician offices on a wide range of topics around COVID-19 vaccines for children aged five and older. AAP content, including videos on potential side effects, preparation for the jab and interactions with other immunizations, will be aired on PatientPoint screens in those offices.

“Through our work with PatientPoint, we will be sharing educational videos and other resources with families on the COVID-19 vaccine in physicians’ offices, encouraging them to have those important discussions with their trusted pediatricians about getting their child vaccinated,” said AAP president Lee Savio Beers, MD, FAAP, in a statement.

“PatientPoint is proud to collaborate with the American Academy of Pediatrics to deliver important information about the eagerly awaited COVID-19 vaccine to families through their child’s trusted healthcare provider,” added PatientPoint EVP of content and creative Kate Merz in the statement.
