The COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and 100% free for everyone 5 and up in California’s 58 counties. Young people ages 5 and up are now eligible to receive the vaccine. Learn more about why the vaccine is one of our most powerful tools to ending the pandemic.
It is recommended that everyone ages 5 and older get a COVID-19 vaccine, and a booster when eligible, to help protect against COVID-19. Vaccinating children can help protect family members who are at increased risk for getting sick if they are infected or are not yet eligible for vaccination. Vaccination can help keep kids in school and safely participate in group activities. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been authorized for children ages 5 – 15 and approved for teens 16 – 17. COVID-19 vaccine dosage varies by age on the day of vaccination.
The COVID-19 vaccine has been proven safe and effective for children based on data from clinical trials. All COVID-19 vaccines continue to be rigorously monitored.
On June 16th, join us for a virtual town hall discussing the importance of self-care and wellness in our post-pandemic world. The town hall will feature two panel discussions — “Overcoming the pandemic and the Intersection between Mental Health and Spirituality” and “Nutrition, Exercise, and Wellness”. Panel discussions will be led by doctors, spiritual leaders, and prominent athletes. With tracks both in english and spanish, we aim for the town hall to be inclusive of both our english-speaking and latinx community members.
