Why Get Vaccinated?
Getting children ages 6 months and older vaccinated will help to keep them healthy. The vaccine has been proven to be both safe and effective. Some children who get COVID-19 do not have many symptoms. However, they can still spread the virus to others. By getting vaccinated, the chance of this greatly decreases. Getting young children vaccinated will not only keep them safe, but also help to protect the community.
Our team is here to answer any questions you may have. We encourage you to discuss your concerns with your child’s doctor. This can include questions about if the COVID-19 vaccine will affect your child’s regular shot schedule, as well as questions about potential side effects.
