Keep Children Safe With the COVID-19 Vaccine

If you have children, protect them this school year by making sure they get their COVID-19 vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and free – and it’s recommended for all eligible school-aged New Yorkers 12 years and older. Just like adults, kids can catch COVID-19 and spread it to others, particularly if they are unvaccinated. Getting vaccinated is one of the best ways to make sure your child is protected from COVID-19.
