Louisiana children ages 12 to 15 years old can now receive the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine.

The move follows FDA and CDC approval this week for the vaccine to be administered to kids as young as 12.

The State Health Department said today the vaccine passed the same safety benchmarks for the younger age group as it did for those 16 and older so officials alerted vaccine providers to begin administering the same two doses of vaccine to the kids as the adults receive.
