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.
