President Biden on Tuesday pledged a smooth rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine for kids aged 6 months to 4 years old who can now head to pharmacies and doctors’ offices for them, giving the rollout a different look than efforts for older ages that featured converted gymnasiums and drive-thru centers.
Mr. Biden said the federal government’s website, Vaccines.gov, would be updated Tuesday so families can find vaccine sites and appointments.
“Finally, some peace of mind,” Mr. Biden said. “The United States is now the first country to offer safe and effective vaccines for children as young as 6 months old.”
