Is there a COVID-19 vaccine for children?

Yes. Currently, the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available for children ages 6 months through 17 years.

CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months
and older, and COVID-19 boosters for everyone ages 5 years and older, if eligible.

  • COVID-19 vaccine schedules vary based on age, product, and immune status.
    Caregivers should consult with their child’s doctor to determine how many
    total COVID-19 vaccine doses are recommended.

COVID-19 vaccine provides the opportunity to further protect your child from COVID-19 and help get life back to normal.

COVID-19 vaccines have gone through clinical trials and scientific review just like any other vaccine — including those your child has likely already received — with the same high level of quality and safety standards.

Vaccination gets our kids back to the programs, activities, and social interactions they need for academic, social, emotional, and physical development.
