California Ordering More Covid Vaccines for Children

Governor Newsom is ordering more COVID vaccines after health experts say children as young as six months are safe to vaccinate. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were approved by a review board yesterday as safe and effective for children as young as six months old. Experts say reactions among infants from six-to-12 months and children one-to-five years were consistent with reactions to other recommended vaccines. Newsom says nearly 400-thousand doses have been preordered and will be given to more than 8,500 sites throughout the state.
