Question: Why should children ages 5 years and older get vaccinated against COVID-19?
Answer: According to the CDC, the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks. Children who get COVID-19 can get very sick, can require treatment in a hospital, and in rare situations, can even die. After getting COVID-19, children and teens can also experience a wide range of new, returning or ongoing health problems. Getting eligible children vaccinated can help prevent them from getting really sick even if they do get infected and help prevent serious short- and long-term complications of COVID-19.
