CDC Approves COVID Vaccines for Youngest Kids

NBC News reported:

On Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed off on COVID vaccines for the youngest Americans. Her endorsement means shots can begin immediately, finally ending the two-and-a-half-year wait on the part of parents of children under 5.

Walenksy accepted the recommendation within hours after the CDC advisory committee voted unanimously in favor of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines for children as young as 6 months.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee on Saturday endorsed Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines for the youngest children, the last step before CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky could issue her final sign-off.

The unanimous recommendations from the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices followed the Food and Drug Administration’s authorization of the shots on Friday.
