Despite the global move away from vaccinating young people, the CDC last month officially added Covid shots to the list of routine immunizations for kids and adults.
It put a two or three-dose primary series of the Covid vaccine and a booster for people over the age of 19 on the schedule, and the same for children over six months.
Officials said the move would ‘normalize’ the vaccine and ‘send a powerful message’ that everyone over six should stay up to date with their Covid vaccines.
The CDC implemented the move after independent vaccine advisors proposed the changes.
It means the shot is in the same category as vaccines for diseases such as polio, measles and hepatitis B.link
