Statement From Governor Kathy Hochul on CDC Endorsement of First Booster Dose for Children Five to 11
Share

"Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention endorsed the first COVID-19 booster dose for five- to 11-year-olds. This announcement follows the Food and Drug Administration's authorization earlier this week, and next the New York State Department of Health will soon issue guidance to the public.  

"Parents and guardians across New York can rest assured knowing their children will be able to safely access a tool that protects against serious illness from COVID-19. As we head into summer vacation, there is no better time to get our children boosted and protected against COVID-19 for the fall school year.  

"Boosters are doctor-recommended, widely available, free, and safe, and we need as many eligible New Yorkers to take advantage of this life-saving tool. When we protect ourselves, we protect our families and our neighbors. We're in this together, New York."
