FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Children & The COVID-19 Vaccine

With COVID -19 cases rising in Sonoma County, we need to protect all children, including babies and toddlers. Among children infected with COVID in the United States, over 130,000 have been hospitalized and more than 1,500 have died. There’s no way to know how COVID will affect your child. Even if your child is perfectly healthy, your child can still get very sick from COVID. Almost half of the children hospitalized with COVID had no other health issues. Every child 6 months and older should get vaccinated against COVID as soon as possible.

Getting the vaccine is the best thing you can do for your child’s health. Not only does it protect against severe disease and hospitalization, but it can also give parents greater confidence for their children to participate in childcare, school, sports, playdates, and other group activities that are so important for their physical and mental health.

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. Like all vaccines, COVID-19 vaccines are not 100% effective at preventing infection. Some people who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations will get COVID-19 breakthrough infection, however experts think that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill 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.
