HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania health officials say about 750,000 children across the state are expected to become eligible for Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot. Health providers in Pennsylvania could begin vaccinating people between the ages of 12 and 15 later this week after a federal vaccine advisory committee signs off as expected.

That announcement is expected Wednesday. The state Health Department said Tuesday that vaccine providers should follow their existing policies for vaccinating minors, which requires parental consent in Pennsylvania.
