Decision on vaccines for young children coming soon
The FDA group that decides about vaccines is due to meet on Feb. 15 to discuss Pfizer's proposed vaccines for those 6-months old to 5 years old.  From what I see, the approval is not a slam dunk.  If approved, the US is intending to get 10M doses of the vaccine to those that would administer shots (pharmacies, etc.) by Monday, Feb. 21.  (Pharmacies can only give doses to 4+.  Younger children will have to get it from a pediatrician.)

Quote: Just over 20% of kids aged 5-11 are vaccinated, while 55% of children 12-17 are vaccinated, according to the CDC.
