Children as young as 5 years old can now get vaccinated against COVID. This protects them and their families from getting seriously ill with COVID and it variants. BPDD collaborated with the Waisman Center to develop resources for families around the vaccine. Read our vaccine fact sheet for children 5-11. It’s also available in Spanish, Hmong, and Somali.
BPDD has also created resources for guardians or people who are under guardianship. These resources talk about what role guardians can play in deciding who should be vaccinated and answers questions around the statutes and legal issues that have to do with guardians and medical decisions.
