Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have shared that they’re keenly awaiting the day they can get their kids can receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, the couple opened up about wanting to protect their kids from COVID-19, and also protecting their peers. “Who wants to be the parents that give their kid COVID and then gets their kid’s school shut down?” Ashton Kutcher shared.

While vaccines are available for children over 12 at the moment, the couple’s 4-year-old son, Dimitri Portwood, and 6-year-old daughter, Wyatt Isabelle are still too young to receive any of the available vaccines. Ashton and Mila have revealed they were both vaccinated back in April.

They spoke to PEOPLE last Tuesday at an event in Los Angeles, “That’s what we were talking about. Yeah, it is [weird], because every day you’re like, ‘I hear it’s going to be approved by X date,’ and then it gets pushed and it gets pushed, and you hope that it’s getting pushed for the right reasons and not just because someone wants to put their name on it,” Mila said.

Kutcher added, “And who wants to be the parents that give their kid COVID and then gets their kid’s school shut down and keeps kids from being educated because they didn’t get vaccinated because the kid couldn’t get vaccinated.”


“Even if you are vaccinated you still can get COVID and give it to your kid, and they can still get very sick and get the entire school shut down,” he shared, “Who wants to be that person? Nobody.”

The family experienced lockdown together, like many families around the world. Kutcher shared how they got through the long days, “We actually kind of tried to just celebrate the fact that our kids are young and they still want to hang out with us and we got to be with them all day,” he says. “I think the whole thing was scary, but we talked about it a lot. Our kids are still pretty young and our son is going to be 5 and he’s probably known more of life in a mask than not in a mask. So for him and our daughter as well, it’s just a lesson in resilience.”

Are you waiting for the vaccine for your younger kids too?

  • All of my family have been vaccinated. I’m lucky that my youngest is 38 and my grandchildren are all over 15. I hope everyone who can, gets vaccinated so we can protect the elderly and the ones’ who aren’t able to vaccinate for health reasons.


  • The sooner everyone gets the jab should mean the sooner we can all get back to living our full lives.


  • We discussed it with our kids and gave them the option. They chose to have it thankfully. I’m still unsure if I am comfortable getting our younger children vaccinated yet though.


  • I’m undecided if I would get my 4 year old vaccinated with the covid vaccine.


  • I don’t always agree with this couple and their views but I agree here, my 14yo son and I both feel much more comfortable and less anxious now that he is fully vaccinated


  • Am trying to keep up with latest info.


  • Both my children are under five and one has reactive airways and the other asthma so it’s a bit stressful for us because that are at a lot higher risk and can’t get vaccinated.


  • my two youngest are still too young, they will be getting the jab as soon as they are allowed


  • Bring it on. Our 12 year old is vaccinated- now just waiting for one for the 11 year old


  • I can’t wait to get my kids their shots but mine are 6 and 9.


  • My daughter is booked in but my youngest is still too young to be able to get it. I would hate for us to get it and pass it on to him and then him suffer worse because he was unvaccinated


  • My sons school advice to get at least one vaccine before school starts.We have already booked it for next week.


  • Yep, I can’t wait until one is approved and is safe for my child. I am so worried about them getting COVID I just wanted them protected.

    • Any protection from Covid makes sense to me.


  • I think each parent needs to make that choice for themselves with what they are comfortable with and what they feel is the right decision for their child and their family situation. Right now I’m not interested in giving it to my 5 year old but I may change in the future and if there is some safety studies done on it for younger children, I’ll wait and see.


  • I thought pfizer and moderna were already in trial stages for younger children.
