  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized updated COVID-19 shots from Pfizer and Moderna that target the omicron variant for children as young as six months. Children between 6 months and 5 years old who received the Moderna primary series can receive the updated Moderna booster as soon as two months later. Children between 6 months old and 4 years old who received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine can get the companies’ updated vaccine as a third shot.
