Vaccines are an important tool to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and allow families to safely resume normal activities. Although children and youth are less likely to get very sick from COVID-19 they can still:
- Get sick from COVID-19
- Be infected and not have any symptoms
- Spread COVID-19 to others
- Experience longer-term effects if they do get infected
COVID-19 vaccines authorized by Health Canada are safe, reliable, and can help protect you, your family, and our community from COVID-19. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Children born in 2016 or earlier are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Find information about how to get a vaccine.
