On Thursday, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is set to vote on whether or not to include the Covid vaccine in their recommended schedule of shots for children and teens.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is scheduled to meet on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss, amongst other topics, whether to include the Covid vaccines and other vaccinations into their child and adolescent immunization schedule.



According to WBOY, the CDC is considering adding the vaccine to their schedule in order for it to be covered under the federally-funded Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program and other programs.

In order for vaccines to be covered under health plans, shots must be approved by the CDC director, and appear on the CDC’s immunization schedule, according to a document from the CDC.

According to the CDC, VFC is a federally funded program that provides vaccines to children at no cost to families.

The CDC’s immunization schedule for kids is seen as a recommendation for parents and physicians on when certain vaccines should be administered. The schedule also serves as a building block for school districts nationwide, many of whom chose to follow these guidelines as requirements for children to enter public schools.

The inclusion of the Covid-19 vaccine on this schedule could give the green signal for school districts to enforce mandates on their students, with some schools across the country pausing their mandates over low vaccination numbers in minors.

Many European nations have said that Covid vaccines are not necessary for children.
