HOUSTON - Children ages 5 and up can sign up to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Texas Children's Hospital.
The hospital has opened appointments for them to receive Pfizer’s vaccine beginning Saturday, Nov. 6. Though, this is pending emergency use authorization and final sign-offs from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and State next week.
On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration authorized the Pfizer vaccine for emergency use in children 5 to 11 years old, a key step in rolling out the shots to younger children.
The CDC will next have to decide whether to sign off on the shots.
