What is a multi-generational household?

If you live in a multi-generational household and you’re at least 16 years old, you are now eligible for a vaccine. When people from three or more generations live together, they are considered a multi-generational household. Here are some examples: 

  • A household where an elder lives with a parent and grandchild.  
  • A person who lives with and cares for someone who is not their own child such as a grandchild or niece.
