The US Finally Approves Covid-19 Vaccines For Kids Between 5 And 11

On Tuesday, the health officials of the United States of America finally signed off on the kid-size doses of the Pfizer vaccine shot. This historical moment has expanded the vaccination campaign of the United States to children as below as five years of age.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has already sanctioned vaccine doses that are one-third of the amount given to teens and adults for children between five and eleven years of age. But, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, formal recommendations have been given concerning people who should get the vaccines cleared by the FDA.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave the announcement only hours after a panel of advisory took a unanimous decision to open the availability of the Pfizer shots to the twenty-eight million children between five and eleven years of age. 

This decision has provided Americans under twelve years of age with the first opportunity to immunize against the Covid-19 virus effectively.

Walensky stated that since she is a mom, she emphasizes parents consult with their pediatrician, school nurse, or local pharmacist to get more information regarding the Covid-19 vaccines and the essentiality of injecting those vaccines into their children. 

She also stated earlier on Tuesday that there may be a lower infection and death rate in the young generation. Still, the Covid-19 virus has undoubtedly impacted them socially, mentally, and educationally, as the creation of a colossal imbalance has happened in children’s learning processes. She also said that many second-grade children have not even experienced a typical school year, but people can change everything with pediatric vaccinations.

According to President Joe Biden, this decision is equal to a “turning point” for them as it will help stop parents’ anxiety for their kids and reduce the spread of the virus through children. He stated that this is a huge step taken by the United States to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics has shown full support to the decision as its members are entirely prepared to start injecting the doses into the arms of babies, and this will happen as soon as possible, as speculated by the CDC. The children between five and eleven would receive two low doses, which would be in a gap of three weeks of the Pfizer vaccine partnered with BioNTech.

The shipment of millions of Pfizer shots has taken place over the weekend to states, doctors’ offices, and pharmacies. These get manufactured in orange caps to avoid confusion from the purple-colored vials for adults.

Many parents have strongly expressed their views on the protection through vaccines for the youngsters, so they become eligible to continue with their everyday lives without getting at risk or being afraid of contracting the virus and passing it to their family members. But the CDC has also stated that many parents have queries regarding the vaccine since they are fearful of the vaccine as people pride misinformation.ṣ
