COVID vaccines for kids one step closer
BOWLING GREEN, KY: COVID vaccines for children age 5 to 11 is one step closer to reality.
The FDA authorized the kid-size doses Friday.
Next week, advisers to the CDC will meet to discuss which youngsters should get vaccinated.
In the meantime, Pfizer officials say they will begin shipping millions of vials of the pediatric vaccine to doctor’s offices, pharmacies and other vaccination sites.
The kid-size doses are just a third of the amount given to teens and adults.
