The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration gave Pfizer's shot the greenlight this week, saying it would be available for children as young as 12 under the same emergency use authorization granted to adults. The action opens vaccinations to approximately 17 million adolescents in the U.S.
In clinical trials of 2,000 children, the Pfizer vaccine revealed a 100% efficacy rate.
The vaccine is also available at Bergen County and Morris County megasites and at CVS and Rite Aid.
There are more than 3.7 million New Jersey residents who have been vaccinated so far. Another 915,000 is needed to reach the state’s goal by the end of June.
