Research shows that the approved COVID-19 vaccines are very effective in children.
While children usually get a mild infection, some can become very sick, develop a multisystem inflammatory syndrome, long COVID and may need to be admitted to hospital.
Children with certain medical conditions can also have an increased risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19.
We also know that children can often transmit the virus back to their families and, at a lower rate, within their community and school environment.
By vaccinating your child against COVID-19 you can ensure that you have done everything possible to keep them, those around them and the community safe.
