Biden Admin Lays Out COVID Vaccination Plan for Kids Ages 5-11

The Biden administration has rolled out its blueprint for vaccinating children ages 5 to 11 against the coronavirus.

The administration laid out the plans Wednesday in anticipation of the Food and Drug Administration authorizing emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine for that age group.

The administration says it has enough of the Pfizer vaccine for 28 million children in the age group, which will be given to more than 25,000 pediatric and primary care providers, the White House said, NBC News reported.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will work with the Children’s Hospital Association to establish about 100 vaccination clinics for the inoculations.

Additionally, tens of thousands of pharmacies will offer the vaccine and the federal government wants to make the shots available at hundreds of schools and community health centers.

Administration officials have told governors to expect to start vaccinations for the 5-to-11 age group next month, NBC reported.

An FDA advisory committee is expected to meet next week to talk about Pfizer-BioNTech’s request to approve the use of their vaccine for the children in that age group.
