Children 6 months and older can get the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine
As of June 17th, the FDA has authorized the Pfizer vaccine for children aged 6 months to 5 years, making everyone 6 months and older eligible for the vaccination. Scientists have conducted thorough clinical trials and concluded that the vaccines have met the safety and efficacy standards for authorization.
The safety of COVID-19 vaccines continues to be monitored.
Children between the ages of 2 and 4 years old, and children and adults who haven't been vaccinated yet should continue to wear a mask in public spaces and around other people outside of their household.

Why get vaccinated?
Getting vaccinated will protect yourself, and the people around you.
For your family, for your loved ones, for the new normal awaiting all of us,
please consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available for you.
Vaccines are a critical new tool in the battle against COVID-19. All COVID-19 vaccines that are being offered have been carefully evaluated for their safety and for their effectiveness in preventing COVID-19 illness and transmission from one person to the next. There is a small risk of getting illness so mild that you would not go to the hospital and not die. Until most of us have received the vaccine, it is still important to wear our masks to prevent transmission whether we have been vaccinated or not. Getting the vaccine will make a difference in your life.
