Scott Gottlieb predicted Sunday on "Face the Nation" that the Biden administration could begin rolling out COVID-19 vaccines for children as soon as November 4, right after panel of Centers for Disease Control panel will decide whether to grant emergency use authorization for the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11.

Gottlieb said the Biden administration is making the effort to push the vaccine directly into pediatricians' offices.

Gottlieb said many parents may not want to drag their children into a mass vaccination site or pharmacy and would rather have their children in the comfort of their own pediatrician's office.

Pfizer and BioNTech asked the FDA to authorize the vaccine for children 5 to 11 in early October

"If Pfizer does get the authorization on Tuesday from FDA, even before the CDC votes on this on November 2 and 3, they'll start to ship it into the supply chain so it will be available for use once there is a hopefully positive vote from CDC, said Gottlieb

Although kids are at a lower risk of having a severe outcome due to contracting the virus, many have been hospitalized. According to the CDC, at least 731 children have died from COVID-19, including 160 deaths in the 5- to 11-year-old age range.
