he Moderna Covid-19 vaccine is also now recommended for children aged 6 months through 5 years in a two-dose series for most children and appropriate dose amount.

Parents of newly eligible children should contact their local public health office or other approved COVID-19 vaccine provider about availability of the appropriate vaccines.

The state health department says the newly authorized vaccines for young children are in the process of being ordered, shipped and delivered to Wyoming locations.
