As moms we research everything. Everything. Twice.
I feel like I’m constantly researching the best place to have a birthday party, which family-friendly places to eat, or what we can do this upcoming weekend.
I knew I needed to do my research when it came to COVID and my child’s future health. I consulted with their pediatrician and turned to reputable sources to make the best decision for my family.
TALK TO THE EXPERTS
Parents make decisions that are best for their families. A great resource for information is your doctor or child’s pediatrician. Ask questions! The more informed you are, the better!

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
We all yearn for normalcy in our lives, especially for our children.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends a COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 and older. Currently, Pfizer’s vaccine is the only approved COVID-19 vaccine for children.
We encourage you to use all available local and state resources, including retail pharmacies, to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
