Pfizer and BioNTech vaccines for children aged 5 to 11 years have been given authorization in the United States. After careful study, Rochelle Walensky, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approved the immunizations, and experts estimated that this decision would affect 28 million children in the United States.
The US Food and Drug Administration has analyzed the reports and has found out that there are no serious side effects of the vaccines on the kids and the vaccine effective rate recorded was 91%. The FDA stated that the vaccination rate amongst kids is almost 2 times more than adult vaccination.

Dr. Anthony Fauci also said and advocated that every parent must get their kids vaccinated if they fall under the vaccination eligibility criteria. It has been observed under various studies that vaccination will minimize the spread of the virus.
