The United States is ready to roll out millions of COVID-19 vaccines for children under five years old if the Food and Drug Administration grants emergency use authorization.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says an initial 10 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be available for the age group.
The FDA's vaccine advisory committee will meet next week to go over trial data and make a recommendation on whether the vaccine would be appropriate for the age group. 
The CDC director must then sign off before shots can be administered.
The rollout could happen as soon as by the end of the month.
