FDA Authorizes COVID-19 Pfizer Booster Shots For Kids 5-11 Years Old

The US Food and Drug Administration has authorized emergency use for Pfizer's COVID-19 booster shots for children ages 5 to 11 after at least five months from receiving the primary vaccines.

"While it has largely been the case that COVID-19 tends to be less severe in children than adults, the omicron wave has seen more kids getting sick with the disease and being hospitalized, and children may also experience longer term effects, even following initially mild disease," said the FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf. Health officials have urged Americans to keep up with their COVID-19 vaccinations to help protect themselves and others around them.
