There is not yet a COVID-19 vaccine for kids under age 12. That means masks are still an important way to protect them.

Q: Does my unvaccinated child still need to wear a mask if the rest of our family has gotten their shots?

A: New guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer need to wear masks indoors or outdoors in most cases. But we realize that families with children who are not yet old enough for a vaccine may find it difficult to decide what’s best for everyone.
