The G3Wire- November 5, 2021

This week, the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup completed its review of the federal process and has unanimously concluded that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is safe and effective for youth 5 to 11 years of age. The Workgroup provided its confirmation to the Governors of Nevada, California, Oregon, and Washington on Wednesday. On Friday, October 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the use of the vaccine in 5- to 11-year olds, and the CDC affirmed that decision on Tuesday.

Statement from Governor Sisolak: 

“Today is an important day for families all across the state of Nevada and I am so proud to say that the COVID-19 vaccine is available for those as young as 5-years-old. Thank you, again, to the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup for coming together to give parents confidence in the science behind this vaccine. I encourage all families to choose vaccination for their children and for themselves. Protecting our kids will give them more days at school, with their friends and with their families. Vaccination is our way out of this pandemic.”
