This means that nearly 20 million more children can now be protected against COVID-19. Vaccination provides a critical opportunity to prevent serious illness, giving families with young children more options to participate in childcare, school, and other activities while protecting themselves and others through vaccination.

      Both the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for use in children ages 6 months through 5 years. The Moderna vaccine will be a two-dose primary series, and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will be a three-dose primary series.

Both vaccines are safe and proven to protect children against serious illness from COVID-19. These vaccines have undergone—and will continue to undergo—the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history.
