CDC panel votes to recommend new COVID jabs for kids 6 months and older

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended another round of COVID booster shots for all Americans including children as young as six months old amid an uptick in cases and media fearmongering about a new wave of the society-altering virus.

On Tuesday, an advisory panel for the nation’s top federal public health agency voted 13-1 in favor of approving a “universal” recommendation for the new vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna that will be available this week as the Biden administration prepares to ramp up its campaign to push the latest round in a seemingly never-ending cycle of COVID jabs.

“CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 illness this fall and winter. Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available later this week,” the agency said in a news release.

According to the CDC, “The virus that causes COVID-19 is always changing, and protection from COVID-19 vaccines declines over time. Receiving an updated COVID-19 vaccine can restore protection and provide enhanced protection against the variants currently responsible for most infections and hospitalizations in the United States. ”

“We have more tools than ever to prevent the worst outcomes from COVID-19,” CDC Director Mandy Cohen said in a statement. “CDC is now recommending updated COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 6 months and older to better protect you and your loved ones.”

“The Biden administration has been working to ensure easy and convenient access to the updated Covid-19 vaccine so that most people will still be able to get free ones. For people with health insurance, most plans will cover the Covid vaccine at no cost. People who don’t have health insurance or with health plans that do not cover the cost can get free vaccines from their local health centers and pharmacies participating in the C.D.C.’s programs,” Cohen wrote in an op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday.

President Joe Biden hawked the new vaccines on Twitter/X, abstaining from the bullying language of prior years that only served to increase vaccine hesitancy.

“Vaccination against COVID-19 remains the most important protection in avoiding hospitalization, long-term health complications, and death. I encourage all Americans to stay up-to-date on their vaccines,” Biden said in a statement posted to the White House’s website.

“As a doctor, a mother and the head of the C.D.C., I would not recommend anything to others that I wouldn’t recommend for my own family. My 9- and 11-year-old daughters, my husband, my parents and I will all be rolling up our sleeves to get our updated Covid-19 vaccines along with our flu shots soon. I hope you and the people you care about will do the same,” Cohen said in her op-ed.
