News and Announcements from DODE Admin

CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation to expand COVID-19 vaccination to children younger than 5 years of age on June 18. This decision now universally recommends COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, paving the way for nearly 20 million children in this age group to get vaccinated and allowing providers to begin vaccinating with either the Moderna or the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as soon as possible.

Parents with questions are encouraged to talk to their child’s healthcare provider, school nurse, or local pharmacist to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine and the importance of keeping children up to date with all recommended vaccinations.

Below is a list of resources related to the recommendation:
