Children and young teens could get a Covid-19 vaccine in the second half of next year, an advisor for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday. Dr. Jose Romero, the chair of the CDC's Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices, said he hopes to see trials testing Covid-19 vaccines in young children beginning in the second quarter of 2021. Romero's comments came three days after his committee voted 13-1 to prioritize the first vaccine doses for health-care workers and long-term care facility residents. Medical experts have previously advocated for health-care workers to get the vaccine first, followed by vulnerable Americans, including the elderly, people with preexisting conditions and essential workers. About 75% of health-care workers are women, according to a presentation during the meeting, and 330,000 of them are pregnant.
