Children under 12
Status: Currently, there are no COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in children under the age of 12. Children’s immune systems are different from adults and their immune systems can even vary at different ages, so more research is needed to ensure the vaccine will be safe and effective for infants, and kids younger than 12.
What you can do now:If you are a parent or caregiver of a child under 12 and would like to get the COVID vaccine, call (804) 828-CHOR (2467) to get schedule your appointment.
Children and families should continue following current COVID-19 prevention measures – wear a mask (age 2+), wash their hands and social distance. Self-quarantine at home if you or anyone in your family is sick to avoid potentially spreading the virus. It’s also important to keep up with routine vaccinations and medical care to help everyone stay healthy.
