The CDC Advisory Committee on Tuesday unanimously recommended the Pfizer Covid vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky still has to give her final stamp of approval.
Children ages 5 to 11 are on the cusp of being cleared to get Covid-19 shots after a key CDC panel unanimously voted Tuesday to recommend Pfizer’s doses for younger kids.
The final decision now rests with CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who is expected to accept the recommendation by the agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Once she signs off, which is expected as early as late Tuesday, vaccinations for young kids could begin immediately.
“Starting the week of Nov. 8, the kids vaccination program will be fully up and running,” White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients said Monday. “Parents will be able to schedule appointments at convenient sites they know and trust to get their kids vaccinated.”
Children are at virtually zero risk from dying of Covid and the FDA admitted they don’t know the long term risks to children.
“We’re never gonna learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it,” one of the FDA’s voting members said on Tuesday.
