  • COVID-19 Vaccines for Young Children

    COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccines are recommended even for children who have already had COVID-19, since prior infection does not protect against new variants. COVID-19 infections have caused serious illness, hospitalization, and, in rare instances, death among young healthy children who had no underlying medical conditions. Vaccines can help protect your child.
