They're safe.

Clinical trials with more than 3,000 children found the vaccines work and are safe.

The side effects are similar to adults: a sore arm, headache, and being tired or achy for a day or two.

More information below.

They're free.

COVID vaccines are always free, even if you don't have insurance and regardless of your immigration status.

Children ages 5-11 get a smaller dose of the Pfizer vaccine, so it may not be available everywhere. Call ahead to make sure.
