WASHINGTON, D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden will visit a pediatric COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Children’s National Hospital in Southeast D.C. this afternoon to continue the nationwide effort urging parents and guardians to vaccinate children ages 5-11. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, Washington Mystics player Alysha Clark and Washington Wizards player Thomas Bryant will also participate.

“I have always encouraged my constituents to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible, and we now see the excellent results. Now that the vaccine is approved for children ages 5-11, I am pleased to continue that effort with today’s visit,” Norton said. “Thank you to Dr. Biden for your work encouraging parents and children alike to get this safe, reliable, and free protection from the disease that has taken too many Americans from us already. Vaccinations are our best public health tool and the way to bring this pandemic to an end.”

"If you or your children are unvaccinated, you can find a nearby clinic by going to Vaccines.gov."
