COVID-19 and Coronavirus Updates and Resources

June 22, 2022

Children age 5 and under are now eligible to get a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Learn more about where you can get a safe and effective vaccine for your child here!

 

On June 18, the CDC announced its recommendation that children age 6 months and older should get a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The decision was made after analyzing substantial data from clinical trials involving thousands of children, confirming the vaccine's safety and effectiveness for children in this age group. The CDC also advises that children age 5 and older who receive the Pfizer vaccine should get a booster at least 5 months after their second shot. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country and summer travel begins, getting vaccinated is our best line of defense to protect all people, including children age 6 months and older, from getting severely ill with COVID-19.
