Massachusetts Medical Society: COVID-19 Vaccination Recommendations for Children and Teens

COVID-19 Vaccination Recommendations for Children and Teens

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends COVID-19 vaccines for everyone 6 months and older. COVID-19 vaccines available for children include:

Everyone 6 years and older should get 1 updated Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of whether they’ve received any original COVID-19 vaccines.

There is currently no authorized COVID-19 vaccine for children younger than age 6 months.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) also recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all children and adolescents 6 months of age and older who do not have contraindications.
