When can kids get the COVID vaccine or booster?

Vaccines and boosters are our best hope to move beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, COVID-19 vaccines are here for babies and young children aged 6 months to under age 5 in addition to other age groups already eligible.

The American Academy of Pediatrics(AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend the COVID-19 vaccine for infants, children, and teens. COVID vaccine boosters are recommended for everyone eligible. There is no preference for the Moderna vaccine or the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
