CDC allows use of Pfizer vaccine among 12-15s

The advisory panel of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention unanimously voted on Wednesday to allow the use of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine among children aged between 12 and 15.

With the latest decision, set to be announced by CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, pediatricians will receive the green light to start administering the shots starting from tomorrow.

Earlier today, the CDC noted that it hasn't registered any adverse effects related to the use of the jab among 2,000 children who participated in the trials. The announcement comes two days after the Food and Drug Administration approved the vaccine's use in adolescents.
