COVID-19 Vaccine for Children ages 6 months through 17 years

The CDC recommended all children 6 months and older receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • If you’re unsure if the vaccine is right for your child, we recommend discussing your child’s medical conditions, including prior reaction to vaccines, with a medical provider.

  • For some immunocompromised children, a third primary series/additional dose is recommended.

  • For more information, visit the CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens webpage.

Booster Dose

The CDC recommends everyone 5 years and older receive a booster dose 5 months after completing the primary series of the COVID-19 vaccine, if eligible.

  • People aged 18 years and older who received Pfizer-BioNTech-COMIRNATY® or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines should receive a 1st booster dose 5 months after dose 2 of the primary series.

  • Children 5 and older who completed the primary series of Pfizer-BioNTech-COMIRNATY® COVID-19 vaccine should receive a 1st booster dose 5 months after dose 2 of the primary series.

  • If you received the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine you should get a booster dose 2 months after your initial Janssen dose.

CDC has also expanded eligibility for an additional (second) booster dose for certain individuals who may be at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19:

  • People aged 50 years and older, or have a weakened immune system may receive a second mRNA (Pfizer-BioNTech-COMIRNATY®, and Moderna) booster dose, 4 months after the first booster dose.
