CDC Advisers Recommend Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine for Kids Ages 12 to 15
CDC Advisers Recommend Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine for Kids Ages 12 to 15. A CDC advisory committee voted on May 12 to officially recommend the Pfizer vaccine for use in children 12 to 15 years of age. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky formally adopted the recommendation soon after. According to Dr. Yvonne Maldonado of the American Academy of Pediatrics, this development is an “important step” forward for immunization in the U.S. Approving Covid-19 vaccines for children 12 to 15 years of age is an important step in removing barriers for vaccinating children of all ages, Dr. Yvonne Maldonado, via ‘The New York Times’. Although children have a lower risk of contracting severe COVID-19 illness, the virus has infected more than 1.5 million kids. . More than 13,000 of them have been hospitalized as a result of COVID-19. In addition, teenagers are thought to transmit COVID-19 as readily as adults, meaning increased inoculation among adolescents will benefit everyone. . Every person with Covid-19 provides the virus with an opportunity to spread and continue to mutate and further expose our communities … The decisions from health authorities this week bring us one step closer to protecting adolescents and achieving herd protection, Dr. Bill Gruber, Senior Vice President at Pfizer, via ‘The New York Times’
