Should my child get the vaccine?

Children can get very sick from COVID-19, and the vaccine is the best way to protect them. The new variants of COVID are more contagious, and more young people in Oregon are being hospitalized with COVID-19. Thankfully, the vaccines offer effective protection against all variants of the virus in the U.S. and help keep children healthy and safe from COVID-19.
