YES. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at reducing severe illness and death from COVID-19. CDC monitors for any health problems that happen after vaccination. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is one of the best ways to slow the spread of COVID-19. Vaccines are available for students aged 5 and older. In addition to increasing vaccination rates for employees and students, schools are still promoting other mitigation strategies including the use of masks, improving ventilation, social distancing, and hand washing.
The known and potential benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks.
