Why Should my Child Receive the Vaccine?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now recommends the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 6 months to age 4. This follows the earlier CDC recommendation related to children ages 5 and older. Vaccines are essential in the fight against infectious diseases. Getting your children vaccinated protects them and others from COVID-19.

If you have specific questions about your child and the vaccine, we encourage you to talk to your pediatrician.
