CLEVELAND, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – Younger children may soon be able to get an updated booster shot, much like the new Pfizer vaccine being made available to the 12-and-older crowd.

The same company has requested emergency authorization from the FDA to begin offering boosters to kids ages 5 to 11.

And Cleveland Clinic Doctor Kimberly Guiliano says some youngsters can get another shot two months after the previous one.

She says kids can go longer than two months if they’re healthy and in a healthy household.
