Three siblings - ages 1, 3 and 6 - receive Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine in clinical trials testing the shot's effectiveness in young children

Three siblings are taking part in the clinical trials looking at how well Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine works in young children.

Ellie, six; Christian, three; and Sloan, one; Bui of Jefferson, Louisiana - which is just to the west of New Orleans - each received their first shot in June.

Pfizer, which had the first COVID-19 vaccine available for any American over the age of 12, is hoping to get emergency use authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to distribute their vaccine to children even younger by the fall.
