Now to the fight against the coronavirus.

This week, the Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve Pfizer's vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds.

The C.D.C. Is also expected to agree with the recommendation meaning shots could start in a matter of days. 

A March study by Pfizer included more than two-thousand volunteers in that age range. 

It found kids experienced side effects similar to young adults.

Results of a COVID-19 vaccine study by Moderna for the same age group is expected later this year.
