Educate About COVID-19 Vaccination for Kids 5 and Up
You'll get more questions about COVID-19 vaccines for kids...now that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is authorized down to age 5.
Early evidence in 2,300 kids age 5 to 11 suggests this vaccine has about 90% efficacy at preventing symptomatic COVID-19. Plus data in 4,600 kids suggest side effects are similar to those seen in older patients.
Give 2 doses, 3 weeks apart...the same as adults. For now, additional doses or boosters are NOT recommended for kids 5 to 11.
