(WFSB) -- Channel 3 continues to get answers to viewer questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

There are even more questions pouring into the newsroom now that the FDA approved emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine for those who are 12 to 15 years old.

This is the first COVID-19 vaccine in the United States authorized for use in younger teens and adolescents; the vaccine had previously been authorized for people age 16 and older.

To answer questions from parents, Dr. Jody Terranova, a health pediatrician at UConn, joined Eyewitness News on Tuesday afternoon.
