CDPH, Community Partners Promote COVID-19 Vaccines for Youth

This week, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced it will be partnering with key community-based organizations throughout the state to increase COVID-19 vaccination for youth ages five and up. From April 11 through June 5, CDPH will increase its ongoing youth vaccination efforts by pairing vaccination opportunities with fun activities for children and families.

The nine-week series of events will focus on brining free vaccinations and vaccine education for children and families to communities. Events will be held at after-school programs, libraries, local parks, and other recreational areas and involved pediatric medical providers.

Vaccines remain free for everyone and are the safest way to protect against the most serious outcomes from COVID-19, including severe illness, long COVID, hospitalization, and death.
