FDA Approves Pfizer Vaccine for 12-15 Year Olds

The FDA approved Pfizer and BioNTech’s request to allow their Covid-19 vaccine to be given to kids ages 12 to 15 on an emergency use basis. The agency granting use of the shot in younger age groups will accelerate the nation’s efforts to drive down infections, experts say. It will also allow middle school-aged students to get vaccinated before school starts this fall.
