What should I do if my child is behind on their vaccination schedule due to the pandemic?
There’s no reason to worry! There are recommendations to help get your child up-to-date with their immunizations. Each vaccine has its own guidelines, so talk with your child’s doctor to get them back on schedule.
Does my child really need catch-up vaccines? Yes, and don’t delay!
When it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic, the only reason immunizations should be delayed is if you, your child, or someone in your household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. As soon as these symptoms resolve, your child’s medical care can resume.
If you have questions, please reach out to your health care provider. Your health care provider can talk with you about specific vaccine questions, and vaccines that may have been missed, and discuss catching up on your child’s vaccination schedule.
