The Food and Drug Administration on Friday authorized both Moderna and Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccines for children as young as 6 months old.
Pfizer’s three-dose vaccine is for kids up to 4 years of age, while Moderna’s two-dose vaccine is for kids up to 5 years of age.
Children under age 5 were the only people left in the U.S. not eligible for vaccination.
The move will expand the use of the vaccines to the nearly 20 million children in the U.S. from 6 months to under 5 years.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to give final approval this weekend.
