Updated Toolkit: Children and COVID-19 Vaccination

The CDC recommends that children age 6 months and older should get a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The decision was made after analyzing substantial data from clinical trials involving thousands of children, confirming the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness for children in this age group. The CDC also advises that children age 5 and older who receive the Pfizer vaccine should get a booster at least 5 months after their second shot.

 
PHCC has created a one-page chart reflecting the latest vaccine recommendations for children, as well as sample social media posts and graphics to help you answer questions about children and vaccines across age groups in your community.
