Beloved local pediatrician Dr. Ben Danielson is here to help! In these videos, he answers some common questions from parents about the vaccines for kids, including:

Is the vaccine safe for kids? Are there long-term effects?

In the “Kids Vax Q&A” video series, Dr. Ben Danielson answers kids’ and parents’ questions about the COVID-19 vaccines for children.

Will the vaccine affect puberty or fertility?
