Children's National Hospital has started enrolling children to participate in clinical research trials to evaluate the Pfizer BioNTech COVID vaccine. It is expected to fill quickly, but there may be future opportunities for other studies.

School, camp, & sports forms, oh my! Has your child had their annual well visit? Or has your child tested positive for COVID since their last visit? It is recommended that school age children have a sports physical after COVID to return to any physical activity. All CAP sites have openings to make your child's health a top priority.
