Vaccination

COVID-19 can affect everyone in our community, including children.

Vaccination can prevent children from getting seriously ill and will make them less likely to transmit the virus to other family and community members.

Who can get vaccinated?

Children under 12 years old: Not currently eligible for vaccination

Children over 12 years old: Eligible for the Pfizer vaccination

This may be subject to change.
