COVID Vaccine for Kids Ages 5-11 Likely in Next Two Weeks, Fauci Says

Dr. Anthony Fauci says Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine could be available for children ages 5-11 as early as next week.

Fauci, appearing Sunday on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” said the authorization for that age group could come “within the first week or two in November.”

“If all goes well, and we get the regulatory approval and the recommendation from the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], it’s entirely possible, if not very likely,” Fauci said, the New York Post reported.

Researchers from the Food and Drug Administration said Friday that the Pfizer vaccine has shown a high efficacy rate among children.

A panel of independent experts is expected Tuesday to make its recommendations to the FDA before the agency makes its final decision on whether to authorize the vaccine for children.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” if authorized, her agency will be ready to conduct its review of the vaccine the first week in November, the Post reported.
