(from the Washington Post) The White House announced its plan to roll out coronavirus vaccines for children ages 5 to 11, pending the vaccine’s approval by the Food and Drug Administration, which the Biden administration anticipates will happen within weeks. White House officials said they have secured enough doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for the country’s 28 million children in that age group. Once authorized, the White House has vowed it will quickly distribute the shots across the country, relying on more than 25,000 pediatricians’ offices and primary care sites, as well as hospitals. White House officials said they are hosting “operational readiness calls” with local jurisdictions.
