Following a sign-off from the country's top two health care agencies, children as young as 6 months old can now be vaccinated against Covid-19 — more than two years after adults were first able to get the shots. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the vaccines, which are made by Cambridge's Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA) and New York-based Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), on Friday following a unanimous recommendation from its advisory committee. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices met on Friday and Saturday and also endorsed the shots.
