The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older get vaccinated against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). As such, CDC is excited to share resources for parents, vaccine providers, and partners. A website for parents and caregivers includes information on COVID-19 vaccination for children and adolescents. In addition, a list of resources for vaccine providers is available to help support conversations with families about vaccination and to highlight ways to improve vaccine accessibility for children, including those with disabilities and special health care needs.
