Covid-19 Vaccines & Boosters for Children 5 years and older
Why should I care about booster shots for kids?
The COVID-19 booster shot is a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine that will make sure your first round of vaccine is strong for a longer amount of time. This can help protect your child from getting very sick and going to the hospital. This can also help protect your child from "long COVID."
-Everyone 5 years old and up needs a booster shot.
-Right now, anyone 5 years and older can get the Pfizer booster shot.
-You should wait at least five months after their vaccine to take your kid to get the booster.
