“We have one more vaccine that saves lives of children. And that we should be very confident to deploy it to the maximum to do what it is meant to do without significant concerns of serious adverse effects,” said Dr. Sarah Long, a professor of pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, and one of 14 members of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices who voted to recommend the vaccine.
“As you’ve heard, we all have a lot of enthusiasm for this vaccine in this age group,” added Dr. Beth Bell, a clinical professor of global health at the University of Washington.

She continued: “But we also understand that parents have legitimate concerns and legitimate questions, and that our vote is a way of telling the American public that, based on our expertise and the information that we have, we’re all very enthusiastic. We were all talking about how we’re getting our kids and our grandkids vaccinated. But I think another point that we made to the American public is that we do understand that people have legitimate concerns and that they have lots of questions. We really encourage people to ask their providers, to visit the CDC website, to talk to their friends, their parents, and do what they need to do to feel comfortable with their decision.”

It’s now up to CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky to recommend the vaccine, and she has signaled she will do so. After that, vaccination of the younger children may begin immediately.

Vaccine advisers to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted unanimously Tuesday to recommend giving Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine to children ages 5-11.

Members of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices spent close to an hour commenting in support of the recommendation before they voted.

The question now goes to CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who signaled in opening remarks to the committee’s meeting that she strongly supports vaccinating children in this age group to protect them against Covid-19 and its complications, and to help school get back to normal.

Vaccination could begin as soon as Walensky issues her decision.

Vaccine advisers to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spoke in strong favor Tuesday of recommending Covid-19 vaccines for children ages 5-11.

CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices was discussing whether to recommend Pfizer’s one-third sized vaccine for children, after the US Food and Drug Administration issued emergency use authorization last week.

Members of ACIP’s working group, which went over efficacy and safety data, told the meeting they felt strongly the benefits of the vaccine outweighed the risk.

Voting and non-voting members of ACIP took turns speaking in favor of vaccinating children Tuesday before the vote.

Members of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners all spoke in favor of recommending the vaccine.

“The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, the world’s largest organization of pediatric infectious diseases specialists, strongly supports the universal recommendations the Covid-19 vaccination of children 5 through 11 years of age, as authorized by the FDA,” Dr. Sean O’Leary, associate professor of pediatrics at Children’s Hospital Colorado, told the meeting.

SOON: CDC advisers vote on Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will vote on whether to recommend Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11.

The US Food and Drug Administration gave their green light for the vaccine on Friday. However, shots cannot be administered until after ACIP make a recommendation on the use of the vaccine and the CDC director signs off.

Earlier Tuesday CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky made a hard case for vaccinating younger children against Covid-19, pointing to the disruption nearly two years of pandemic has made to their lives, and reminding CDC vaccine advisers about the risks of the virus.

Walensky sent a clear signal about where she stands. “We have been asking when we will be able to expand this protection to our younger children,” she said in opening comments to the committee.

“As you review the data today, it will be key to keep in mind the specific risks to children from this virus and the pandemic, and to put that risk into context of other vaccine-preventable diseases,” she said, noting that children are routinely vaccinated against diseases such as chickenpox, which kill far fewer children and put far fewer of them into the hospital than Covid-19 does.
Many vaccine clinics, children’s hospitals and pediatricians’ offices across the United States have received shipments of Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine doses for ages 5 to 11 and are ready to put shots into arms as early as Wednesday – or even Tuesday night — if the Walensky recommends it.

The company Viral Solutions, which organizes Covid-19 vaccine and testing clinics in Georgia, confirmed that it has received Pfizer’s child vaccine, and if the CDC gives the green light, vaccinations could start as early as Tuesday evening at a location in Decatur.

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in California and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio both confirmed to CNN that they received their vaccine shipments Tuesday and are planning to administer vaccine Wednesday, pending CDC sign-off.

And MiDoctor Urgent Care in New York confirmed to CNN that child vaccine doses have arrived and are ready to be administered on-site Wednesday morning.

Pfizer’s vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 received emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration on Friday, and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice is meeting now to consider whether recommending use of the vaccine in that age group. Shots can be administered after CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signs off on that recommendation.

The Biden administration has secured enough vaccine supply to vaccinate the 28 million children ages 5 to 11 in the United States who are eligible for vaccination, according to the White House. Pfizer’s vaccine for younger kids is a smaller dose of 10 micrograms, rather than the 30 micrograms used for people 12 and older.
