(Atlanta, GA) -- The first coronavirus vaccine for kids as young as five is ready to go.  

Parents can start making appointments Wednesday after the CDC signed off Tuesday night. Pfizer's vaccine will be given in smaller doses, one-third of what teens and adults receive.  

President Biden calls this a turning point in the fight against COVID. The White House confirms it has enough shots for all 28-million children in this age group.
