If your child has recently had COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should wait until out of isolation or quarantine before receiving the vaccine. Isolation after being diagnosed with COVID-19 is generally 10 days but may be longer if your child has prolonged symptoms, was hospitalized, or has a weak immune system. Quarantine following exposure to someone with COVID-19 is generally 14 days.
Yes, COVID-19 vaccine can be given at the same time as other vaccines, including influenza. If you recently received another vaccine, you can receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available.

A third dose is recommended for those age 5 years and older with a compromised immune system 28 days after the second dose
A booster dose is recommended for those 12 years and older 5 months after the initial series because the first two doses may lose effectiveness over time in adults
