Description

The CDC is saying yes: doctors and nurses can give kids 12-15 years old the Pfizer COVID vaccine. In Georgia, 12-year-old Jane Ellen Norman was ready to get her shot. "I hope that they all get vaccinated and so we can see each other," she said. As younger and younger groups get the go-ahead, how these vaccines could interact with other common adolescent vaccines is a concern.The CDC is including guidance language saying health care providers should consider that giving multiple shots at the same time could result in a bad reaction.
