What is the COVID-19 vaccine dosage for young children?

Question: 
What is the COVID-19 vaccine dosage for young children?
 
Answer: 
Young children get a smaller dose of the same vaccine used for youth and adults. Children aged 6 months to 4 years of age receive a 25 microgram dose of the Moderna vaccine, which is a quarter of the dose adults get.
 
Young children need a smaller dose of the vaccine to get the same protection from COVID-19.
