Dayton Children's offers open Pfizer vaccine clinic on heels of FDA approval

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA) for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.
