HONOLULU (KHON2) — Keiki between the ages of five and 11 are now able to receive the Pfizer COVID vaccine at several locations across Hawaii and will only be administered with approval from a parent or guardian.
On Tuesday, Nov. 2, the director of the CDC authorized the use of Pfizer’s vaccine for kids between five and 11. The FDA also cleared use for these kid-sized doses on Friday, Oct. 29. The doses given to this age bracket are just one-third of the amount given to teens and adults.
