Biden Expects FDA to OK Vaccines for Children Under 12 Soon
During a televised town hall in Ohio Wednesday night, President Biden stressed the importance of all age groups getting vaccinated.
He said the FDA will most likely grant emergency use authorization for kids under 12 soon.
Biden said kids who are not vaccinated should wear masks when they return to school this fall.
He also said he believes the FDA will grant full authorization of the COVID-19 vaccines this fall.
Biden and health officials say the pandemic is now one of unvaccinated people.
The CDC says almost 50% of Americans are fully vaccinated.
They are expected to meet Thursday to discuss if COVID-19 booster shots are needed.
