Pfizer is expected to get the green light to expand COVID-19 vaccinations to children. State Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm:
“Given the significant amount of cases we’ve seen in middle and high-school-age kids recently this expansion would be a real welcomed development and a significant step forward to make it that much harder for the virus to continue circulating and affecting people.”
If Pfizer gets the go-ahead, children 12 and up could start getting vaccinated later this month. Pfizer reports its COVID vaccine is 100-percent effective in that age group.
