According to HealthyChildren.org, the 3-dose vaccine (Pfizer) was first tested using 2 doses. Adding the third dose was found to be more effective at protecting babies and young children from the omicron variant that is that is the most common variant spreading in the United States right now. Children will have highest degree of protection two weeks after they get the last required dose.
