What about children?
Children aged 6 months and older can receive a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. All eligible children are recommended to get an updated COVID-19 vaccine, even children who have already had COVID-19.
Vaccination guidance varies depending on the age of your child. Speak with your doctor about the COVID-19 vaccination schedule for your child.
What about those who are unable to get an updated dose?
According to the CDC, people 12 years and older who are unable to, or choose not to, get an updated Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine can receive the Novavax or the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your doctor for guidance on finding the best vaccine for you.
