Help Protect Your Child, Your Family, and Others
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends expanding booster dose recommendations to children ages 5-11 years old. The booster dose should be administered 5 months after the initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series.
The CDC also recommends that those who are 12 and older who are immunocompromised and those 50 and older should receive a second booster dose at least 4 months after their 1st booster dose.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help protect children ages five years and older from getting COVID-19.
- Vaccinating children can help protect family members, including siblings who are not eligible for vaccination and family members who may be at increased risk of getting very sick if they are infected.
- Vaccination can also help keep children from getting seriously sick even if they do get COVID-19.
- Vaccinating children ages five years and older can help keep them in school and help them safely participate in sports, playdates, and other group activities.
