Did you know over 65,000 San Diego children ages 0 to 9 have tested positive for COVID-19?
COVID-19 in children can result in long-term disease, hospitalization, or death. As masks come off, our children are still at risk.
The COVID-19 vaccine is approved by the FDA* for children for ages 5 and up. The vaccine is safe, effective, and free for children 5+ and families.
COVID-19 vaccines have undergone – and will continue to undergo – the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history.
The COVID-19 vaccine is still the most effective way to protect our children, family, and friends, from getting COVID-19. They prevent long-term disease and hospitalization. Talk to your medical provider for more information.*
*The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has received emergency approval by the FDA for children ages 5-15 and full approval for ages 16 and up. Information provided here is not a replacement for medical advice, please consult your medical provider.
