Centre for Disease Control (US) Schedules Covid Vaccines for 6-month old Babies

The CDC (Centre for Disease Control) in the United States has placed COV19 vaccines and boosters on their schedule of recommended vaccines for children, adolescents and adults.

This does not mean schools have to mandate COVID19 vaccinations for their students which is a local decision for local authorities, but does mean the CDC is recommending they do.

Dr. Neil Murthy and Dr. A. Patricia Wodi, CDC medical epidemiologist and infectious disease specialist said in a joint statement…

“This means COVID-19 vaccine is now presented as any other routinely recommended vaccine and is no longer presented in a special “call out” box as in previous years. This, in a sense, helps ‘normalize’ this vaccine and sends a powerful message to both healthcare providers and the general public that everyone ages 6 months and older should stay up to date with recommended COVID-19 vaccines (including a booster, when eligible), just as they would with any other routinely recommended vaccine.”
