This webinar event is a collaboration between The California Department of Health Care Services Office of Family Planning, the California Prevention Training Center, the California Department of Public Health, and “#ThisIsOurShot” Program.

Please join two OBGYNs, Dr. LaTanya Hines and Dr. Michael Policar, for a webinar training on how to effectively communicate with your clients about COVID-19 vaccination, including overall safety, safety and efficacy during pregnancy and post-partum lactation, and the evidence regarding COVID-19 vaccination and future fertility.

  • Key messages that address common concerns of reproductive-aged individuals about the COVID-19 vaccine, especially among people who are considering becoming pregnant, are currently pregnant, and those who are lactating
  • An evidence-based methodology to tackle tough vaccine conversations and get to “yes”
