CDC approves COVID-19 vaccines for children under 5; vaccinations began this week
About 20 million U.S. children under 5 years old are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as early as this week following approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted 12-0 to recommend Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 6 months through 5 years and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children ages 6 months through 4 years.
Only 18% of parents say they will vaccinate their kids in the age group as soon as possible, according to recent poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, due to the lack of "enough information about the vaccines' safety and effectiveness." A similar dynamic played out after the shots opened to children aged 5 to 11 last November, with less than a third of that demographic getting vaccinated (compared to the 75% fully vaccinated U.S. population over the age of 12).
Moderna vaccine for children ages 6-17 backed by CDC
A second COVID-19 vaccine for school-age children and adolescents moved closer to approval Thursday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted 15-0 in favor of Moderna’s vaccine for children ages 6-17 years, although advisers are concerned about confusing instructions for vaccinators. The recommendation now goes to the CDC director for final approval.

COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy helps protect infants from needing hospital care for COVID-19
In a new study sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers provide additional evidence that COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy helps protect babies younger than 6 months from being hospitalized due to COVID-19. The risk of COVID-19 hospitalization among babies was reduced by about 80 percent during the Delta wave (July 1-December 18, 2021) and 40 percent during the Omicron wave (December 19-March 8, 2022).
