How to talk to your kids about COVID-19 vaccines
Posted by City of Philadelphia on November 16, 2021
With the approval of the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11, many parents may be starting to have conversations with their kids about getting immunized. Pediatricians recommend giving honest and accurate answers to any questions kids may have about the vaccine, while keeping things simple. Keep in mind your child’s age and development when explaining about the vaccine. For younger kids, a simple message that vaccines are a special type of medicine that helps keep your body healthy and reassurance about pain is what they need to hear.
