The working group of experts appointed to review the federal decisions on COVID-19 vaccines voted unanimously Wednesday to approve the use of the Pfizer vaccine in children ages 5 to 11.
The panel was formed by the governors of Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington shortly after the vaccines were first announced more than a year ago.
With that announcement, Gov. Steve Sisolak ruled that vaccinations for children can begin in Nevada.
The Food and Drug Administration approved the vaccines last Friday and the Centers for Disease Control affirmed that decision Tuesday.
