FDA: Don't Give COVID Vaccine To Children
The agency granted full approval to Pfizer's vaccine yesterday for people 16 and older.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Pfizer's COVID vaccine should not be given to young children off-label. That's according to the head of the FDA. 

The agency granted full approval to Pfizer's vaccine yesterday for people 16 and older – but says it still needs more data on children younger than 12.  

For that reason, it says those kids should not get the vaccine – even at a smaller dosage.
