Help Protect Your Child, Your Family, and Others
The CDC recommends that children five and up get vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine.
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.
You may also consider other options for getting vaccinated, including:
Area pharmacies. Community pharmacies and those participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program might have vaccine available. Check the website for your local pharmacy, such as Walgreens , Costco , Hy-Vee , CVS , Hometown Pharmacy , Wal-Mart , Pick-n-Save, and Metro Market .
A healthcare provider. Visit a provider's website for more instructions. Some providers will vaccinate you, even if you are not their patient. Below are websites to a few of the most common providers in the area:
Even as more Wisconsinites get fully vaccinated, it is critical for everyone to continue to use mitigation strategies, including masking up, staying physically distant, washing hands, and getting tested. These are still critical tools for protecting ourselves and our communities against COVID-19.
