4 Reasons to Vaccinate Your Child

  1. Children can get very sick from COVID. The vaccine is the best prevention.
  2. Children who get COVID can get other illnesses later. They may have a higher risk of getting chronic diseases like diabetes in the future.
  3. Vaccinated children can participate in more events and activities. The COVID vaccine is expected to be added to the list of vaccines required for school.
  4. The vaccine is safe and effective. Studies show it protects children from severe illness.

Where can I vaccinate my child when they are eligible?

Check with your child’s regular doctor. Your child’s doctor can vaccinate them for COVID and keep them up to date on other vaccinations.
