Question: 

How many doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will children aged 5 to 11 get?

Answer: 

Most children aged 5 to 11 should get two doses of the vaccine about 8 weeks apart for their primary (intitial) series. Children in this age group who are moderately to severely immunosuppressed should receive a 3-dose primary series. Learn more about who is eligible to receive a third dose. A fall booster dose is recommended for everyone 5 years and older at least 6 months after completing their primary series.
