COVID-19 Vaccines for Children Under 5 – Now Available

Vaccines are safe, effective, and are the best way to stay protected from COVID‑19 and its variants. They are an important tool to help prevent serious illness and support the overall health and wellbeing of our children and communities.

  • The Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available for children ages six months up to five years. Parents/guardians can now book a vaccine for their young child in the following ways:
    • If you have a family doctor, contact their office directly to get the pediatric COVID-19 vaccine. Many health care providers are providing the pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for children under age 5 in Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
