Whitehall, May 14, 2021 – Children ages 12-15 years old are now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. After successful clinical trials and a rigorous review of all available data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized Pfizer’s request to expand the emergency use authorization (EUA) to include adolescents ages 12-15.
