Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.9

Advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday unanimously voted to add COVID-19 vaccines to the recommended immunization schedule for children and adults for 2023. According to this recommended schedule, children 6 months and older, as well as adults, should get the COVID-19 vaccine. A CDC spokesperson told Fox News on Wednesday that “there are no changes in COVID-19 vaccine policy, and this action would simply help streamline clinical guidance for healthcare providers.” However, critics stress that the CDC’s recommendation will likely impact how states decide which vaccines are required for school attendance.
