Covid vaccine for children brings a “day of relief,” says Biden

President Biden encouraged parents to vaccinate their young children after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved pediatric doses of the Pfizer BioNTech coronavirus vaccine for the approximately 29 million children between the ages of 5 and 11.

After months of rigorous and independent scientific scrutiny, the Food and Drug Administration, the accredited FDA, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the CDC, recommended the Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11. For parents across the country, this is a day of relief and celebration. Twenty-eight million more young Americans are now eligible for vaccine protection. And my administration is ready – we are ready from day one – today we are organized and have a plan for the introduction of this vaccination. We’ll have enough vaccine and places by next week, and parents can make appointments so that their children can get their first vaccination. We have also worked with governors, mayors, and local school principals to bring vaccines into schools. To date, more than 6,000 school clinics are planned in school districts across the country. These efforts will also ensure justice, which is at the heart of our childhood immunization program, as the adult immunization program has been so far.
