When to get your kids vaccinated in time for the holidays

With the approval of a COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, many parents are scrambling to get their kids appointments. However, others are taking more of a wait-and-see attitude, which is perfectly understandable. After all, making medical decisions for our children is much different than making medical decisions for ourselves.

But parents who decide to wait should keep in mind that the Pfizer vaccine—the only one authorized for children in the US right now—requires two doses spaced three weeks apart for maximum efficacy. In addition, you are not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after that second shot.

So if you’re hoping to have your child vaccinated by a certain date, they’ll need to start the process five weeks early. You can’t just show up a few days before an event or travel to have your child vaccinated and expect them to receive the shot’s full effects.

To help you plan, we’ve compiled a list of important dates through the rest of the school year, and when you’d need to start your child’s vaccination process. Remember that some people experience side effects after the vaccine, so plan on a day or two of recovery time after each shot.

Note: All school-related dates are for my district—your local calendar may be different. You’ll see these marked with an asterisk on the graphics below.

It’s a little too close to Hanukkah to get the full protection of the vaccine in time. Katie Belloff

Hanukkah: Sorry, but if you were hoping to have your child fully vaccinated by the start or end of Hanukkah, those deadlines have passed.Christmas (Saturday, Dec. 25): In order to have any children in your family fully vaccinated by Christmas, their first appointment should be no later than Saturday, Nov. 20, with the second shot scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 11.New Year’s Eve (Friday, Dec. 31): To have your child fully vaccinated by New Year’s Eve, their first shot should be no later than Friday, Nov. 26, with the second one scheduled for Friday, Dec. 17.Lunar New Year (Tuesday, Feb. 1): For a fully vaccinated Lunar New Year, your child’s first shot should be no later than Tuesday, Dec. 28, with the second scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 18.

A lot of these dates are fairly close together, so you can plan ahead or a number of holidays if you start early. Katie Belloff
