An advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted Wednesday to recommend Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine for use in kids ages 12 to 15.

The vote comes two days after the Food and Drug Administration amended its emergency use authorization for Pfizer's vaccine to include this age group and is considered one of the final steps needed before shots start going into arms.

As of May 3, Oliver said that more than 3,700 MIS-C cases had been reported, and they tended to be more serious in teenagers than in younger children — adding evidence for the potential benefits of vaccination.

Eighteen people in the placebo group developed symptomatic Covid-19, compared to zero cases among those who got the real shots.

Getting young teens to the doctor for their Covid-19 vaccination may also be a good time for kids to catch up on any shots they missed during the pandemic, Dr.

However, the CDC currently advises against people of any age getting other types of vaccinations within two weeks of the Covid-19 vaccination.

"The need for catch-up vaccination in coordination with Covid-19 vaccination is urgent as we plan for safe return to in-person school," Woodworth said.

The largest gaps are found for shots normally given to adolescents: the HPV vaccine, which protects against human papillomavirus; the Tdap vaccine, for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis; and the meningococcal vaccine, to protect against meningitis.

But some panel members were reluctant to advise giving teens Covid-19 vaccinations at the same time as other vaccinations, mainly because the practice has not been studied.

The CDC panel acknowledged it is unknown whether giving other vaccinations at the same time as Covid-19 shots will lead to a significant increase in side effects and suggested physicians weigh risks of whether any particular patient is behind or at risk of falling behind on recommended vaccinations

Meanwhile, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a statement in favor of giving children vaccinations for both Covid-19 and other illnesses concurrently
