A former FDA commissioner believes some kids younger than 12 could be getting COVID-19 shots by Halloween. Dr. Mark McClellan told CNBC Monday that based on new Pfizer data, FDA action in the next month "seems very feasible." Pfizer announced its COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective in children between five and eleven-years-old.        At least 160 American citizens and permanent residents are out of Afghanistan since U.S. forces wrapped up its withdrawal there. That's according to State Department figures. The department also confirmed Monday that a flight carrying 21 Americans and 48 permanent residents took off from Kabul this past weekend.        FedEx will hike its shipping rates next year. The company announced Monday prices will go up by an average of about six percent. FedEx said in a statement the changes "reflect incremental costs associated with the challenging operating environment."        A newly released Wallethub study puts New York as the best state to be a teacher. Rounding out the top five were Utah, Washington, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. On the flip side, New Hampshire was ranked the worst place to be an educator.       Two sheep are back with their owners after they led San Antonio authorities on a wild chase. In a Facebook post, San Antonio Animal Care Services said officers responded to multiple calls about a pair of loose sheep grazing next to a highway in the city. The officers spooked the sheep when they approached and fled towards the road. They were eventually corralled and reunited with their owners unharmed.
