The top infectious diseases expert in the U.S. says children five to eleven years old could be receiving COVID-19 vaccines as early as this month.
Just days earlier Anthony Fauci said he had been aiming for Halloween, but he's hopeful it could happen quicker.. adding the FDA wants to do it quickly.
This comes as the number of cases surge among children following the full opening of in-person classes in schools across the U.S..
Pfizer announced Monday that results from a pediatric trial indicate that its vaccine is safe and effective for children in this age group in a smaller dosage than adults.
