Will school vaccination sites help close the Latino COVID-19 gap?

UC Irvine epidemiologist and public health expert, Sanghyuk Shin, [associate professor of nursing], said it’s rare for children to experience extreme side effects of the vaccine. “The pandemic is new, the vaccine development — all of that is new. But from all of the data I have seen, the data strongly shows that it’s highly effective in preventing COVID -9 and that it is also very safe,” Shin said in a phone interview last week.
