The Pfizer findings will be discussed during a meeting of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Therapies Advisory Committee, which will take place later this month.

Once the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gives its approval, the administration may commence as early as supplies of child-sized dosages are available in doctors’ offices and other locations. Depending on the circumstances, that may happen towards the end of October or as early as early November.

When Covid-19 vaccinations were first made available to adults, many of them received their injections via nursing homes or other large-scale immunization programs. Later, numerous dosages were given in pharmacies and physicians’ offices to teenagers between the ages of 12 and 15. 

“We’re trying to get doctors registered, and that’s a big strategy,” Claire Hannan, chief executive of the Association of Vaccination Managers, said of the organization’s efforts to determine who would give Covid-19 injections to young children. On the other hand, enrolled pediatricians may not get vaccination doses as soon as the FDA approves the vaccine. It may take some time for some people to get supplies of the vaccination. According to Hannan, during a conference call with the Association of Vaccination Managers on Wednesday, officials from Pfizer said that there would be an “adequate” supply of vaccines for a possible launch for children aged 5 to 11.

Providers may theoretically begin administering Covid-19 injections to children aged 5 to 11 as soon as the FDA approves their use, as happened when vaccinations were approved for older children. However, this would depend on which providers’ orders for the vaccine are completed first and how fast those providers get shipments of the dosages.
