Expanded Eligibility for COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Doses for Children 5-11 Years Old

More than 4.8 million children ages 5 through 11 have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and 15,000 have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As numbers of cases fluctuate throughout the country, a booster dose will be useful to safely help enhance protections against severe disease. On May 19, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, authorizing the use of a single booster dose for administration to children 5 through 11 years old at least five months after completion of a primary series with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. Additionally, the CDC both agreed to this expansion to booster authorizations and recommended that those 12 years of age and older who are immunocompromised and those 50 years of age and older should receive a second booster dose at least 4 months after their first.
