5:04 pm
of the recommended one third dose. i said our health spokesperson says in part, as soon as we learned of this, we contacted the parents and advise them of cdc guidance in this situation. but the father of two boys who received more than the recommended dose tells me it was nine hours before they were contacted by hospital officials. his voice stayed home from school with stomach aches. on monday. the kids were back at school tuesday. i know that this is really frustrating for these parents, and i hope that this raises awareness and put more quality checks into place, dr monica gandhi, ucsf infectious disease professor explains that pfizer actually studied giving children in the 5 to 11 age group 20 micrograms during trials. money decided to drop the 20 not because it was really dangerous because they wanted to make the smallest dose possible, so it's not. i think getting 20 micrograms just once is not going to hurt anyone better. health explains that pediatric vaccines in question were made with an incorrect amount of delia went meaning they were not properly diluted after being taken out of the vial and put

5:06 pm
this may have happened to? sure i think it all depends on how your child is feeling. whether there are any side effects and the one thing that the doctors have said is if you are apparen. you have absolutely every right to ask your doctor to ensure he, can you tell me how much micrograms are in that dose? as long as it's 10 micrograms you should know for sure. and they should also show you the orange violet comes in. that's the pediatric vaccine. the adult vaccine comes in a purple vial. so you should also be able to ask your pediatrician or pharmacist to make sure that it is the correct. vaccine and the correct dosage and just to put this out there, center health did say it is only the 14 kids that they know of again. they basically kept it to these 14 children. there are no reports at any other hospitals or any other clinics that this has happened. all right. we're all good information to know christina. thank you. new developments today on a promising treatment for covid-1. pfizer is asked fda regulators to authorize its experimental covid-19 pill that reduces deaths and hospitalizations.
