Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky, M.D., last night accepted the recommendation of her agency’s independent Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to administer Pfizer’s pediatric COVID-19 vaccine to children between the ages of five and 11. Coupled with the Food and Drug Administration’s Oct. 29 emergency use authorization to Pfizer for its pediatric Covid-19 vaccine, this recommendation paves the way for the product’s administration to this age group immediately.
