Help Protect Your Child, Your Family, and Others
The CDC recommends that children 6 months and up get vaccinated against Covid-19 with the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccine. The virus that causes Covid-19 is always changing, and protection from the Covid-19 vaccines declines over time.
- 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 can help keep them in school and help them safely participate in sports, playdates, and other group activities.
