28 million children are now eligible for the Pfizer COVID vaccine. President Biden touted the advancement towards ending the pandemic, and urged skeptical parents to discuss vaccines with family and friends.
In a separate teleconference, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky insisted the vaccine is safe and effective for children.
Data on the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric #COVID19 vaccine showed no cases of severe side effects in children ages 5-11. It is safe and over 90% effective at preventing COVID-19. Getting our younger kids vaccinated is crucial to preventing spread of the virus. https://t.co/ObNAnzU7Gv https://t.co/OnEjaAu0rl— Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH (@CDCDirector) November 4, 2021
