On June 18, 2022 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that all children 6 months through 5 years of age should receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccines have undergone—and will continue to undergo—the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. Parents with questions are encouraged to talk to their child’s healthcare provider, school nurse, or local pharmacist to learn more about the vaccine, and the importance of keeping children up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.
