Mayo Clinic Minute: Back-to-School COVID-19 vaccinations for kids


Everyone 6 months of age and older is now eligible for an authorized COVID-19 vaccination. Providing the extra layer of protection against getting sick with COVID-19 will not only help keep kids from missing school, but it can also help prevent complications that have been associated with COVID-19 infection.

Parents and guardians can touch base with their child’s health care professional to see if they are due for a vaccination or a booster vaccination before the new school year.
