The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday authorized updated Covid shots that target the omicron variant for children as young as 6 months old.
Children 6 months through 5 years old who received Moderna’s original vaccines are now eligible for an omicron booster two months after finishing their primary series.
Kids ages 6 months through 4 years old who have not yet started Pfizer’s three-dose primary series are eligible to receive an omicron shot as their third dose.
But kids 6 months through 4 years old who have already completed Pfizer’s three-dose primary series cannot get the omicron shot as a booster at this time.
