(2021, May) | Useful for Parent Centers and others to share with families whose children (with or without disabilities) are 12 and older and considering vaccinating their children again COVID-19
Para la misma información en español (Vacunas contra el COVID-19 para niños y adolescentes):
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC), while fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 as compared to adults, children can:
- Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
- Get sick from COVID-19
- Spread COVID-19 to others
Therefore, the CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
This info page at the CDC will tell families all about how to do this, why families should, where to find vaccination sites, possible side effects, preparing your child for vaccination, and costs (there are none! the vaccinations are free).
