It’s estimated there are about 102,000 children in Wake County ages 5 to 11, many of them with barriers to health care. That’s why Wake County is emphasizing that these vaccines are given at no cost to families and no insurance or IDs are required. Wake County Public Health is also partnering with Wake County Public Schools and community groups and organizations like the Poe Center to help reach these vulnerable populations with vaccination events in the community during the month of November.

 

Clinical trials with more than 3,000 children found the vaccines work and are safe. The side effects are similar to adults: a sore arm, headache, and being tired or achy for a day or two.
