The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-10 vaccine for children ages five to 11 contains one-third of the dosage that’s given to teens and adults. It was recently found to be 90.7 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 in children.
“We finally have this vaccine available to help keep our children, as well as our loved ones, safe and healthy, and it is critical that we take advantage of it,” Gov. Hochul says.
