In some situations, complications from infection can lead to death. Although children are at a lower risk of becoming severely ill with COVID-19 compared with adults, children can: -Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 -Get very sick from COVID-19 -Have both short and long-term health complications from COVID-19 -Spread COVID-19 to others Children with underlying medical conditions are more at risk for severe illness from COVID-19 compared with children without underlying medical conditions. Children who get infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can also develop serious complications like multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C)—a condition where different body parts become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. Help Protect Your Child, Your Family, and Others Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help protect children ages 5 years and older from getting COVID-19. Vaccinating children can help protect family members, including siblings who are not eligible for vaccination and family members who may be at increased risk of getting very sick if they are infected. Vaccination can also help keep children from getting seriously sick even if they do get COVID-19. Vaccinating children ages 5 years and older can help keep them in school and help them safely participate in sports, playdates, and other group activities. Help protect your whole family and slow the spread of COVID-19 in your community by getting yourself and your children ages 5 years and older vaccinated against COVID-19. Protect Unvaccinated Children Unvaccinated children ages 2 and older should wear a mask in public spaces and around people they don’t live with.
