  • The U.S. on Saturday opened COVID-19 vaccines to infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
  • Moderna’s is two shots, each a quarter of its adult dose, given about four weeks apart for kids 6 months through 5 years old.
  • In studies of the Moderna and Pfizer shots in infants and toddlers, other vaccinations were not given at the same time so there is no data on potential side effects when that happens.
