“COVID-19 vaccines will become available for infants, toddlers and preschoolers in the United States for the first time next week. Advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended the vaccines for children as young as six months old, and the final signoff came hours later from Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the agency’s director. … The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Friday authorized Moderna’s shot for children aged six months to five years, and Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine for children aged six months to four years.” (06/18/22)
