On Monday, Rochelle Walensksy, Director the Centers for Disease Control, hinted that the Covid-19 vaccine may become available for children under the age of 12 by the end of this year.
“We’re waiting for companies to submit data to the FDA, we’re anticipating that in the fall,” she told the “Today Show” on Monday. “We’ll look at that data from the FDA to the CDC, which we all feel like getting our kids vaccinated and we’re looking forward to the end of the year,” she said.
Officials have said that the FDA is then ready to complete its review as quickly, possibly in a matter of weeks rather than months. Why is this good news for people who have SIRVA from the Covid-19 vaccine? Because the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (“NVICP”) only covers vaccines that have been approves for children under the age of 12. Accordingly, in order for a vaccine to be added to the list of vaccines covered by the NVICP it has to be approved for children under 12.
