COVID-19 Vaccine Update from the AAP

The next two weeks will be consequential in the review process for a COVID-19 vaccine in children ages 5-11, including two important federal meetings:

  • The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is scheduled to meet on Nov. 2 and 3 to consider a recommendation for its use in this age group. Formal recommendations from the CDC and the AAP are likely to follow immediately.

The AAP will continue to update members about these meetings and other developments in the vaccine rollout.
