COVID Vaccine for Children

CDC recommends everyone ages 6 months and older get vaccinated against COVID-19.

COVID-19 Vaccine dosage Is based on your child's age on the day of vaccination; not on size or weight.

Children get a smaller dose of COVID-19 vaccine than teens and adults that is the right amount for their age group.

Children and teens may get a COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines, including a flu vaccine, at the same time.

Even if a child has had COVID-19, they should still get vaccinated. For children who have been infected with COVID-19, their next dose can be delayed 3 months from when symptoms started or, if they did not have symptoms, when they received a positive test. This possible delay can happen with a primary dose or a booster dose.

There are two products available for children and teens: Pfizer and Moderna:

Pfizer is approved for 6 months - 4 years of age.  It is a 3-dose series.  Dose 2 is 3-8 weeks after dose 1; Dose 3 at 8 weeks after dose 2.  Pfizer is also approved as a 2-dose series for ages 5+.

Moderna  is approved for 6 months and older.  It is a 2 dose series.  Dose 2 is 4-8 weeks after dose 1. 

  • Our Department will automatically set your dose 2 and/or dose 3 appointments when you select your dose 1 appointment.

Booster appointments are not set up automatically; you must schedule yourself for booster doses.
