Covid 19 Vaccine: The speed of Coronavirus infection seems to be accelerating more than once. Meanwhile, in the Corona Vaccination program being run for its prevention, the US regulator on Friday approved providing anti-Kovid-19 vaccines to children up to five years of age. This could pave the way for the introduction of vaccination for children from next week.
Before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended its advisory committee, Moderna and Pfizer supplements were allowed. About a year and a half after the Kovid vaccine became available to adults in the US, vaccination of children up to five years of age was allowed. There are an estimated 18 million children in the age group of up to five years in the country.
Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines Approved
The FDA has also approved Moderna’s vaccine for school children and adolescents. Previously only the Pfizer vaccine has been allowed for these children. Vaccines for children under the age of five will now only require approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), following the FDA’s recommendation. CDC’s advisory experts will meet on Friday and give their verdict on Saturday. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Wallensky will provide the final approval.
Orders placed from states also
The Joe Biden administration has been preparing to start corona vaccination for children for the past several weeks. Orders have also been placed for the supply of vaccines from the states. If approved, vaccination is likely to start from Monday or Tuesday.
