COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters

Following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) emergency use authorization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is expanding eligibility of the COVID-19 booster doses to children ages 5 and older. CDC now recommends children ages 5-11 should receive a booster shot five months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech series.
