Pharmacies and clinics may also be offering vaccines for children. It is always best to check with the provider ahead to determine whether the vaccine is available at the venue of choice.

While many parents are anxiously awaiting vaccines for their children, many others remain hesitant of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Dr. Sharon Wang gets vaccinated at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where she works.

Dr. Sharon Wang, an infectious disease physician at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, was one of the first people in San Bernardino County to get vaccinated in December 2020. She understands why parents would be hesitant to get their children vaccinated because there is so much conflicting information about the vaccines. But she wants to reassure them that vaccines are safe.

Wang answered some of the most frequently asked questions from parents about the COVID-19 vaccines:

Vaccines were rushed and may not be safe for children.

While COVID-19 vaccines were developed rapidly, all steps have been taken to ensure their safety and effectiveness. COVID-19 vaccines were developed using science that has been around for decades. COVID-19 vaccines are not experimental. They went through all the required stages of clinical trials. Extensive testing and monitoring have shown that these vaccines are safe and effective.

Kids don’t get COVID-19 and if they do, it’s mild.  Young people don’t need to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Although COVID-19 in children is sometimes milder than in adults, some kids infected with the coronavirus can get severe lung infections, become very sick and require hospitalization. This is especially important to remember considering the Delta variant, which is more contagious than other coronavirus variants.

The COVID-19 vaccine will impact future fertility.

You may be worried the vaccine could potentially impact your child’s future fertility, but the research shows that the vaccine does not negatively impact pregnancy outcomes. There is currently no evidence that antibodies made following COVID-19 vaccination or that vaccine ingredients would cause any problems with becoming pregnant now or in the future.

My child could have a serious allergic reaction to the vaccine.

The vaccine’s safety was studied in approximately 3,100 children age 5 through 11 who received the vaccine and no serious side effects have been detected in the ongoing study.

The current COVID-19 vaccines don’t protect against the COVID-19 variants.

The COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States are highly effective at preventing severe disease and death, including against the Delta variant.

For more information on the COVID-19 vaccines for children of all ages, please visit sbcovid19.com/pediatric or discuss the vaccines with your medical provider.

Mientras muchos padres esperan ansiosamente las vacunas para sus hijos, muchos otros siguen dudando de las vacunas COVID-19.

Dr. Sharon Wang gets vaccinated at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where she works.

La Dra. Sharon Wang, médica de enfermedades infecciosas del Arrowhead Regional Medical Center en Colton, fue una de las primeras personas en el condado de San Bernardino en vacunarse en diciembre de 2020. Ella comprende por qué los padres dudarían en vacunar a sus hijos porque hay mucha información contradictoria sobre las vacunas. Pero quiere asegurarles que las vacunas son seguras.

Wang respondió a algunas de las preguntas más frecuentes de los padres sobre las vacunas contra la COVID-19:

Las vacunas se apresuraron y es posible que no sean seguras para los niños.

Aunque las vacunas COVID-19 se desarrollaron rápidamente, se han tomado todas las medidas para garantizar su seguridad y eficacia. Las vacunas COVID-19 se desarrollaron utilizando la ciencia que ha existido durante décadas. Las vacunas COVID-19 no son experimentales. Pasaron por todas las etapas necesarias de los ensayos clínicos. Las pruebas y el seguimiento exhaustivos han demostrado que estas vacunas son seguras y eficaces.

Los niños no contraen COVID-19 y, si lo hacen, es leve. Los jóvenes no necesitan recibir la vacuna COVID-19.

Aunque la COVID-19 en niños es a veces más leve que en adultos, algunos niños infectados con el coronavirus pueden contraer infecciones pulmonares graves, enfermarse mucho y requerir hospitalización. Esto es especialmente importante para recordar considerando la variante Delta, que es más contagiosa que otras variantes de coronavirus.

La vacuna COVID-19 afectará la fertilidad futura.

Tal vez le preocupe que la vacuna pueda potencialmente afectar la fertilidad futura de su hijo, pero la investigación muestra que la vacuna no afecta negativamente los resultados del embarazo. Actualmente no hay evidencia de que los anticuerpos producidos después de la vacunación contra la COVID-19 o que los ingredientes de la vacuna causen problemas para quedar embarazada ahora o en el futuro.

My child could have a serious allergic reaction to the vaccine.

The vaccine’s safety was studied in approximately 3,100 children age 5 through 11 who received the vaccine and no serious side effects have been detected in the ongoing study.

Mi hijo podría tener una seria reacción alérgica a la vacuna

Las vacunas COVID-19 autorizadas en los Estados Unidos son altamente eficaces para prevenir enfermedades graves y la muerte, incluso contra la variante Delta.

Para más información sobre las vacunas COVID-19 para niños de todas las edades, por favor visite sbcovid19.com/pediatric o discuta las vacunas con su proveedor médico.
