Children & The COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to kids 5 years old and up. The COVID-19 virus is still spreading. While COVID-19 tends to be milder in children, it can still make children very sick and cause them to be hospitalized. Children with underlying medical conditions are at even more risk for severe illness.

Getting the vaccine is the best thing you can do for your child’s health. It also helps make sure your kids can keep attending school and other activities

that are so important for their physical and mental health.

Why is it important to get the COVID-19 Vaccine?

The COVID-19 vaccine reduces your chances of getting sick from COVID-19, is a safe way to build protection from the virus, and is an important tool to help stop the pandemic. It is the most important tool we have to beat the COVID-19 pandemic together.

When and where will I get my vaccine?

If you are a patient of Santa Rosa Community Health, you can:

Who is eligible to get the COVID Vaccine and what are the age requirements?

Help protect your whole family by getting yourself and your children 5 years of age and older vaccinated against COVID-19. 

Anyone over the age of 5 is eligible to get their vaccine. 

What is the difference between the third dose and booster shot and who should receive them?

Should I get my booster shot?

Yes. Studies show that after getting vaccinated against COVID-19, protection against the virus and the ability to prevent infection with variants may decrease over time due to changes in variants. As we learned during the Omicron surge, getting vaccinated AND boosted is critical to protect you and others against COVID-19.

What are the side effects of the vaccine?

Will the vaccine protect me from getting sick with COVID-19?

Yes, studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are very effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Experts also think that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19. These vaccines cannot give you the disease itself.

If I already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated?

Yes, due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that re-infection with COVID-19 is possible. It is recommended that you get the vaccine after you are no longer in isolation.

At this time, experts do not know how long someone is protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. The immunity someone gains from having an infection, called natural immunity, varies from person to person. Some early evidence suggests natural immunity may not last very long.

How do I get my vaccine if I am not a patient at SRCH?

How much will the vaccine cost and will my insurance cover it?

There is NO cost for the COVID-19 vaccine. We are working together to end the global pandemic and no one will be denied

the vaccine for cost.
