Washington:

The White House said on Wednesday that the United States is ready to begin vaccinating children aged 5-11 against Covid-19 starting next month.

“Our planning efforts mean we will be ready to start taking shots in the arms in the days following the final CDC recommendation,” the White House said, citing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A panel of CDC experts is scheduled to meet on the issue on November 2-3 and the agency is expected to give its recommendation soon.
