Pfizer COVID Booster Authorization for Kids

On Tuesday morning, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for children aged 5 to 11. Over 8 million children are estimated to be eligible for the shots, having already received two vaccine doses, provided their most recent dose was at least five months ago. With the approval, all Americans aged 5 and older are now eligible for booster shots.

Employees included in the agreement will also receive two $500 cash bonuses this year, on June 15 and September 15. This final vote followed an earlier one by members of the Indian Prairie Classified Association, which advanced the then potential agreement with 77% support.
