The Biden administration will begin shipping vaccines for kids age 5 to 11 as soon as next week, and shots could start going into arms the week after. President Joe Biden’s Covid-19 response team held a news briefing Wednesday to detail their plan for vaccinating younger children, a long-awaited but logistically complex milestone, the success of which could hinge on efforts to combat parental hesitancy. Kids’ shots are smaller doses and will be largely administered by doctors’ offices, requiring a tailored distribution plan. Shipments of the Pfizer Inc.-BioNTech SE vaccines will begin after authorization from the Food and Drug Administration, which could come next week. That would allow vaccines to arrive at doctors’ offices so that they could be administered once cleared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC clearance could swiftly follow a panel hearing scheduled for Nov. 2-3.
