Fauci Ready To Jab COVID-19 Vax Into Kids Aged 5 to 11

Biden administration COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci said that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will likely make a decision on whether to recommend COVID-19 vaccines to children under the age of 12 in the fall.

Regulators should have data in the coming weeks to see whether shots for children aged 5 and 11 are needed, he told ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday.

“Sometime in the next few weeks, as we get into October, we’ll be able to see the vaccines for children get enough data to be presented for safety and immunogenicity,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who has conducted hundreds of media interviews since the pandemic started early last year but has received significant criticism in recent months over whether his agency knowingly provided funding to gain-of-function researchers working at a virology lab in Wuhan, China.
