The current rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine for adults is now ramping up, and pediatricians are now administering vaccines to their highest-risk patients older than 16 years of age if they administer the Pfizer vaccine and 18 years of age or older if they administer the Moderna vaccine. If you have already started a vaccine clinic for these vulnerable patients, you probably have watched the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s video training, which is required for health care providers in order to become vaccine administrators. Take our pop quiz below to see if you are ready to be a COVID-19 vaccine administrator.
