FDA Authorizes Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine for Children 5-11By Radiant Health
Published: October 31, 2021
The FDA has authorized Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11.

Vaccination for this age group is anticipated to begin as early as next week. Moderna said last week that a low dose of its vaccine is effective in children 6-11 and could be available in a few weeks. However, the company is yet to submit its data to the FDA for review.
