On Tuesday, May 17, 2022, the FDA amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, authorizing the use of a single booster dose for administration to individuals 5 through 11 years of age at least five months after completion of a primary series with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.  


On Wednesday, March 30, 2022, the Biden Administration launched Covid.gov, a new website that will help people find out where to get vaccines, test kits, testing locations, treatments and high quality masks. It also provides people with an easy way to find the level of COVID-19 in their community.
