COVID-19 Vaccines for Kids
The CDC recommends the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 and older.
Although children are at lower risk of becoming severely ill with COVID-19 compared to adults, they can still get very sick, develop long-term health complications, and spread the virus to others. Getting vaccinated can help minimize children’s risk.
