Finally, what we are waiting for, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has supported the vaccination of covid-19 for children from 5 to 11 years old. The announcement comes as the covid-19 vaccination campaign begins as early as this Wednesday. This is according to the release by Reuters on Tuesday morning, November 2, 2021.
As planned, Tuesday this week, CDC has announced support for covid-19 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children from 5 to 11 years old since the announcement could lead to an early vaccination campaign this Wednesday.
The CDC decision comes just hours after a panel of US health professionals advocated Pfizer vaccination in children belonging to the above age group. After reviewing the data, it was found that the advantages over the vaccination outweigh the disadvantages.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved last Friday the use of the Pfizer BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine in children 5 to 11 years of age but must stay at a definite limit, only 10 micrograms per dose is required per person. That is less than people from 12+ years of age, who need up to 30 micrograms per dose.
The White House of Washington announced earlier Monday this week that Pfizer-BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine totals 15 million doses is being prepared to be sent to the state to support the immunization campaign for children with about 28 million people of 5 to 11 years old.
This is good news for our kids to get protected by vaccination and hope we will win the fight against Covid-19 soon.
