COVID-19 has caused a lot of harm and suffering to the entire world. It has taken many lives, and people including the doctors are worried whether this COVID-19 will continue or come to an end. Still, the Indian government is the first to come with vaccinations.
Covaxin and Covishield are the vaccinations that the government first approved and released. Since then, we have received back-to-back vaccinations such as Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Sputnik, Pfizer, and Zydus Cadila.
Millions of people have taken up the vaccination, and now it is time for the kids to take up the vaccination. Food and drug administration (FDA) has approved the Pfizer vaccine for children above 5 – 12 years.
After a lengthy discussion, a panel of advisers recommended authorizing the two-dose vaccine for kids ages 5 – 11. The group decided that the vaccine was safe and effective for preventing infections. They have approved two 10-microgram doses of the vaccine, one-third the dose given to adults, three weeks apart.
