COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens
Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can:
Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
Get sick from COVID-19
Spread COVID-19 to others
CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. People who are fully vaccinated can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic. Learn more about what you and your child or teen can do when you have been fully vaccinated. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
