US to start Covid vaccine rollout for under 5 year olds

COVID-19 vaccinations for infants as young as six months have been authorised by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FDA, allowing a statewide distribution to begin next week in the US.
The CDC’s decision on Saturday came after a panel of advisers to the institution voted to recommend COVID-19 vaccines for this age group.

CDC on their media statement published “All children including children WHO HAVE ALREADY HAD COVID-19, should get vaccinated.”
The US Food and Drug Administration on Friday authorized Moderna Inc’s shot for children aged six months to five years, and Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine for children aged six months to four years. Pfizer’s vaccine is already authorised for children over the age of five.
“This coming week, parents will be able to start scheduling appointments at places like pediatricians’ offices, children’s hospitals, and pharmacies,” Biden said in a statement on Saturday.
Prior to the authorisation, the Biden administration had a strategy in place to begin distributing these vaccines to children under the age of five.
