June 23, 2022: Children Under 6 Eligible for COVID Vaccines

June 23, 2022 Dear Minuteman High School Community,

COVID-19 vaccines are now available for children under 6 years old. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authorized the vaccine last week, and we are sharing this news particularly for parents/guardians of the preschool students in Colonial Children's Academy and for staff members or families with young children.

The CDC issued an endorsement of the vaccine for all children ages 6 months through 5 years old on June 18. Subsequently, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education issued a joint memo to schools to share this news with families. 

Vaccines are safe and proven effective for stopping serious illness or death from COVID-19. If you have questions about how to obtain a vaccine, visit mass.gov/vaccine.
