Q: My kids want to have birthday parties this summer, but they are too young for the COVID-19 vaccine. Is it safe for them and their friends?

A: Families can lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission during get-togethers, even with kids too young to get the vaccine yet. They key is to take some extra precautions.


A group of boys play dodgeball during a birthday party. To maximize safety, plan kids’ parties for outdoors or in areas with plenty of space.

Children safe? CDC says they are 99.9% safe without vaccine.

So, are the children safe?
