The U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 to include children 5 through 11 years of age. Therefore, all students over age five are now eligible to receive a vaccine. Vaccines will be administered by Fulton County Board of Health and Core Response.
