Charting Pediatrics

Dec 8, 2021

For the latest information about Omicron, please join us at our next town hall this Thursday, December 10, from 6-7:30.

On November 26 the World Health Organization declared Omicron the fifth variant of concern. First detected two weeks ago, South African researchers were the first to sequence this variant, identifying more than 20 mutations of SARS-CoV-2 that had never been seen before. In this episode, I am joined once again by my un-official Charting Pediatrics co-host, Dr. Sam Dominguez, to unpack what this variant means for pediatrics. Is the Omicron variant more contagious? Does it cause more severe illness? Are the vaccines still effective against it and are our pediatric patients more or less suspectable? These are all good questions.

Even if you are unable to join us live, go ahead and register and you will receive a copy of the recording sent to your email at the conclusion of the live event.

If you have any questions you would like specifically addressed on the Town Hall, please email
