CDC Panel Approves of Boosters for 12- to 15-Year Olds 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted today to recommend a single-dose Pfizer COVID-19 booster vaccine for individuals ages 12-to-15-years-old. They also recommended that booster eligibility should happen five months after completion of a Pfizer vaccination series. Previously, boosters we granted to people 16 or older, with a 6-month waiting period before becoming eligible for a booster dose. Finally, the CDC signed off on an additional vaccine dose, 28 days after their second shot, for 5-to-11-year-olds who are immunocompromised.  

The panel’s decision comes two days after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amended their emergency use authorization for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, endorsing the three recommendations above.  

What happens next?  

Now that the ACIP has given their stamp of approval on the FDA’s recommendation, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky have the final word as whether these changes will take effect. The state of California has one final layer of review, after Dr. Walensky’s pending approval, which is an independent review of data by the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup (WSSSRW).
