FLORIDA NOW THE ONLY STATE TO NOT ORDER COVID VACCINES FOR CHILDREN

Florida officials have not submitted requests for the Covid vaccines that are tailored for children. These vaccines are effective for children aging from six months to five years.

On Wednesday, the Food and Drug Administration approved both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines for children.

Although recommended for children, Governor Ron DeSantis has not ordered any vaccines for the state of Florida.

According to DeSantis, there is “practically zero risks” for children who are that young if they contract Covid without the vaccine.

Although the state isn’t ordering vaccines for children, individual practices and hospitals are able to order the vaccines for patients who want it.
