These are the best ways to protect your child, or a child you care for, who cannot get vaccinated yet:
- Get vaccinated yourself. COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of people getting and spreading COVID-19.
- If your child is 2 years and older, make sure that your child wears a mask in public settings and takes other actions to protect themselves.
- To set an example, you also might choose to wear a mask.
- If your child is younger than 2 years or cannot wear a mask, limit visits with people who are not vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown and keep distance between your child and other people in public.
