Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s Department of Pediatrics recently launched a website that offers multilingual resources about COVID-19 vaccines for children and young adults.

“As a pediatric rheumatologist, a pediatrician, a colleague and a mother, I feel that it is vitally important to be involved in such an endeavor. This website will promote vaccination and make a huge difference in decreasing morbidity due to the illness,” says L. Nandini Moorthy, MD, MS, FAAP, professor of pediatrics.

Resources are available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Tagalog, Hindi and Korean, the top five languages spoken in New Jersey. Links to information on relevant topics related to COVID-19 and the COVID-19 vaccines were obtained from various sources, have been reviewed by Pediatric faculty experts and compiled.
