Children under 12 don't currently have access to the vaccine, but they could in the next coming months. In November, the CDC will reportedly decide on whether the vaccine will be approved for this next age group of children. If you've been waiting to be able to get your child from 5-11 vaccinated it could become available and very soon. Doses are being prepared to be on the ready, for if and when the CDC and FDA approve it. The hope is to make them as accessible as possible once approved.
