Montgomery County is preparing to begin administering coronavirus vaccines to children ages 5 to 11 as soon as the Pfizer vaccine is green-lighted.

County health officials aim to vaccinate 25-30% of the county’s roughly 105,000 residents in that age range during the first week, WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

The vaccine rollout could begin as soon as early November if the Food and Drug Administration gives its approval later this month, WTTG reported.

As of Thursday, more than 711,000 Montgomery residents, or about 68% of the county population, have been fully vaccinated, according to an online county dashboard.
