The Center for Disease Control has expanded its approval of COVID-19 boosters, so now all children ages 5 and up can get boosted. Vaccinations and boosters are still the best defense against severe outcomes of COVID-19. 

How to get a booster shot:

If your child has not yet completed their initial two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series, please do so! Find appointments near you.

Boosters and vaccinations for children not only protect them from getting severely ill from COVID-19, they will also help make sure your family can make it to year-end events and celebrations and enjoy a safe summer.

According to SFDPH, children ages 5 and older are getting vaccinated at high rates in San Francisco: 73% of children ages 5-11 and over 90% of youth ages 12-17 are fully vaccinated. 54% of youth ages 12-17 have gotten booster shots.

We hope you have a wonderful and safe summer!
