From the Experts: What to Know About the COVID-19 Vaccine for Children
With the FDA’s emergency use approval for the Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11, our congregations are excited to come together to learn from Dr. Maureen Nemetski. Dr. Nemetski is a pediatric emergency medicine attending physician at Hackensack University Medical Center—Joseph M Sanzari Children’s Hospital, as well as an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine.
Dr. Nemetski will discuss vaccine updates for children under the age of 12 and strategies for communicating with your children. She will also be able to answer your related questions.
As a Jewish community, we learn that pikuah nefesh the value in Jewish law that preserving human life supersedes all other mitzvot (commandments).
