June 22nd Webinar Recording is Posted!

If you joined our June 22nd webinar on Vaccinations, Return to In-Person Learning, and What All Parents Need to Know, you know that the CDC shared the virtual TON of COVID-related resources they make available in multiple languages. Especially relevant to Parent Centers’ work are: guidance for schools and camps as they reopen to conducting their affairs in person; and their toolkit tailored to help community-based organizations safely reopen to in-person activities with a variety of audiences, including those who have been vaccinated against COVID and those who haven’t been.

We’ve listed and linked the majority of those resources on the webpage where the webinar recording, transcript, and Spanish-language translation of the webinar are posted: https://www.parentcenterhub.org/webinar-cdc-vaccinations-parents-june2021/

Thank you, CDC, for the richness and variety of resources you identified for all attendees. And thanks to all who participated!
