It's Time to Get Your COVID-19 Booster
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), everyone 18 years of age and older should get a COVID-19 booster shot.  Getting a booster is an important layer of protection for child care providers, especially as the weather cools and programs spend more time indoors.
  • If you got the Pfizer or Moderna for your first 2 doses, schedule your booster at least 6 months after your second dose.
  • If you got the Johnson & Johnson for your first dose, schedule your booster at least 2 months after your dose.

More About Boosters
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has updated its information about COVID-19 boosters:

How to Get a Booster Shot
Start by contacting your health care provider to see if you can get a booster shot in their office.  You can also visit the MyTurn webpage to find booster appointments at local pharmacies.  MyTurn can also tell you about vaccine drives at community centers, churches, and other sites near you.
COVID-19 Vaccine Posters
These posters from the Head Start Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center encourage parents to get their children vaccinated against COVID-19.  
Doctors Answer Questions About Vaccines
Parents in your program may be looking for expert advice as they think about vaccinating their 5-11 year old children.  One trusted source is the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which has published advice about the COVID-19 vaccines and a fact sheet about the science behind vaccines for parents.
