(KYMA, KECY/ CNN) - The fda's authorization for updated covid boosters could be expanded to younger age groups as soon October.
That's according to a source close to planning discussions.
Moderna and pfizer both sought f-d-a emergency use authorization for their updated boosters for younger people in recent days.
Moderna is seeking authorization for kids as young as 6 years old and pfizer for kids ages 6 through 11.
The f-d-a has to authorize the updated vaccines for those age groups and the cdc has to recommend them.
The boosters target the original coronavirus strain as well as the omicron and sub-variants --
