“Kids ages 5-11 in the United States are now eligible for vaccination against COVID-19. On Friday afternoon, the FDA authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccine, Comirnaty. The Pfizer shot is the only COVID jab with an FDA nod for those younger than 18.

The endorsement opens up the vaccine to a population of 28 million kids in the U.S. The Pfizer dosage for children is one-third the size of that for those 12 years and older. The second of the two-shot series is to be administered three weeks after the first.”
