Pediatric vaccines were approved on Nov. 2 after CDC advisers recommended Pfizer for the age group.

The Food and Drug Administration OK’d the kid-size doses — just a third of the amount given to teens and adults — as safe and effective for the younger age group. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention formally recommends who should receive FDA-cleared vaccines — and its advisers unanimously decided Pfizer’s shots should be opened to 28 million youngsters.
