CDC Recommends Vaccines for Kids: What It Means for Family Travel

Read Time:38 Seconds

Jun 20. The CDC and the FDA have approved vaccines for children under the age of 5 just in time for the busiest season of travel.

Both Pfizer and Moderna are offering vaccines to young children.

Pfizer’s pediatric COVID vaccine is available to children 6 months to 4 years old. The shot is given in three separate doses. Moderna’s pediatric COVID vaccine is available for children aged between 6 months and 5 years old and is given in two separate doses four weeks apart.

While these shots may not prevent COVID-19 infection, the antibodies the vaccines provide protect children from hospitalization and extreme illness, meaning parents planning summer travel will know that their children are protected in some ways from COVID-19.
