CDC: Vaccines reduce COVID-19 severity in children and teens despite the decline in Omicron prevention

CDC_Banner

New data released last week in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report and on COVID  Data Tracker adds to the body of evidence that COVID-19 vaccination in eligible children and teens continue to offer protection, particularly against severe COVID-19 disease and during Omicron. 

Combined with data from last week – which showed that vaccine effectiveness against COVID 19-associated hospitalization ranged from 92-94% in adolescents ages 12 through 17 during the delta surge to 74% in children ages 5 through 11 during the omicron surge – the study reinforces the importance of vaccination to keep children and teens protected from severe disease and out of the hospital. COVID-19 vaccination remains a safe and critical tool to protect children and teens regardless of their health status.  

CDC continues to recommend that all children and teens stay up to date on their COVID-19  vaccines, including a booster dose for those who are eligible.
