It is spread through airborne transmission from the cough or sneeze of an infected person. It can also live for two hours in an airspace after the infected person has left.
  • The Vaccine Quest online vaccine course – It’s normal to have questions about vaccines: How do I know they’re safe? How can I make sense of all the evidence? OC4V’s national partner, Voices for Vaccines, has developed a free online course to teach you everything you might want to know.
  • COVID-19 Boosters – Stay up to date with COVID-19!
  • Ohio AAP’s Spring Education Meeting – Ohio AAP is bringing together immunization partners across the state to ultimately improve immunization uptake and prevent the spread of disease.
