COVID-19 vaccine available for young children

The Porcupine Health Unit is ready to start vaccinating kids between six months and five years old against COVID-19.

It’s a two-dose, low-dose Moderna shot given at least eight weeks apart.  You need an appointment to get it from PHU, although most primary care providers offer it.

The health unit notes that children are less at risk from the virus, but can develop a severe infection that lands them in the hospital and could develop longer-lasting symptoms and health problems.
