Can children get a COVID-19 booster?

Yes, the CDC recommends that children and teens age 12 and older receive a booster when eligible. Since the Pfizer vaccine is currently the only authorized vaccine for those under age 18, children 12 and older should receive a booster five months after their second Pfizer shot.

Children age 5 and older who have certain medical conditions associated with immunosuppression can receive an additional dose 28 days after their second dose.

Please visit the CDC website for the latest information on vaccine boosters.
