Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. Followed by the endorsement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the ability to vaccinate young children marks a huge step forward in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mullica Hill, NJ – Inspira Health is now offering the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine to children 5 to 11 years old.
