Why children should get a COVID vaccine
COVID can be dangerous for children. Vaccination is the best thing you can do to protect your child from the dangers of COVID. The vaccines for children are safe, and they work well to prevent the worst outcomes of COVID:

That’s why both CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that children get a COVID vaccine.
