White House to hold press briefing on vaccination for kids under 5
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration announced on Saturday that children as young as 6 months old are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna and Pfizer.
The White House COVID-19 Response Team is set to answer the questions and concerns of parents nationwide regarding the vaccine clearance on Tuesday.
Children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years old were the last group of Americans to become eligible for the COVID-19.
Mayor Eric Adams’ office says that this age group of children in New York City could start getting the vaccine as early as Wednesday.
