The COVID-19 vaccine is available to people 6 months of age and older.
June 18, 2022 - CDC has updated its recommendation that all children 6 months and older should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. This expands eligibility for vaccination to nearly 20 million additional children and means that all Americans ages 6 months and older are now eligible for vaccination.
Parents and caregivers can now get their children 6 months and older vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines to better protect them from COVID-19. All children, including children who have already had COVID-19, should get vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccination is one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
