Moderna asks FDA to authorize omicron Covid boosters for children as young as 6 years old

Sumary of Moderna asks FDA to authorize omicron Covid boosters for children as young as 6 years old:

  • The new shots target the omicron BA.5 subvariant as well as the original strain of Covid that first emerged in China in late 2019.
  • The FDA and CDC expect the new boosters to provide superior protection against infection and disease because they target the most common omicron subvariant.
  • The old vaccines, which were designed to combat the original Covid strain, are no longer providing meaningful protection against infection and mild illness because the virus has mutated so much.
  • Pfizer boosters were authorized for people ages 12 and older.
