NEW (July 7, 2022): AMA, AAFP and AAP issue an Open Letter to Parents with Young Children about the COVID-19 Vaccine:

The American Medical Association (AMA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) encourage you to talk with a physician who knows you and your child. You can also find good information on websites like getvaccineanswers.org, HealthyChildren.org and familydoctor.org/vaccines.

Caregivers are also encouraged to register children for v-safe to share how their child is feeling after vaccination. V-safe uses confidential text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins following COVID-19 vaccination.
