CDC says Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine May Now be Administered to Young Children

The Index Today

In latest developments, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that Pfizer-BioNTech’s Covid vaccine may be administered to young children between the ages of 5 and 11.

Administering of the vaccine could start as soon Wednesday according to officials from the CDC. President Biden said, “It will allow parents to end months of anxious worrying about their kids, and reduce the extent to which children spread the virus to others. It is a major step forward for our nation in our fight to defeat the virus.”

The CDC went ahead with the decision after gaining majority vote through an advisory panel. The U.S Food and Drug Administration also announced on that it will be authorizing the vaccine, providing 2 doses three weeks apart for children over the age of 12.

According to clinical trials, the effectiveness of the vaccine was recorded at 90.7% and was considered safe. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will provide input to the CDC with regards to evidence collected for the vaccines efficacy.
