NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The United States Food and Drug Administration has given Pfizer the green light to begin immunizing children between five and eleven-years-old against COVID-19.

Pediatrician Dr. Deshawn Saunders says young children are still at risk for developing severe COVID-19, and for some, the effects can be lasting.
