Children and COVID-19 topic of Sept. 8 forum

Dr. Joshua Jakum of Piedmont Pediatrics will lead the discussion and answer questions, starting at 7 p.m. next Wednesday.
A Warrenton pediatrician will discuss COVID-19 and children during a free online event Wednesday night, Sept. 8.

Dr. Joshua Jakum of Piedmont Pediatrics also will answer vaccine questions from local parents during the discussion that will begin at 7 p.m.

The Virginia Department of Health and the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health Department will sponsor the event.

Conducted on Zoom, the forum will provide information about the spread of COVID-19 in Virginia, discuss how COVID-19 affects children, debunk myths about the vaccines and answer audience questions.

“There is wide availability to receive the vaccine,” Dr. Jakum said. “For those who are hesitant, I hope we can answer those questions that you have so you can have peace of mind in your decision. Vaccination will be the ticket to getting us back to normalcy in our lives.”
