Pfizer vaccine will be used
new York- Pfizer’s application of the Covid-19 vaccine has expanded to American children under 12 years of age.
Eventually, as U.S. regulators expanded the use of Pfizer’s vaccine to 12-year-old children on Monday, the Covid-19 vaccine will be applied to more children, thus launching a competition to protect middle and high school students. .
After the Federal Vaccine Advisory Committee issued a recommendation, two doses of vaccine will be administered to children between the ages of 12 and 15 on Wednesday to begin vaccination.
Vaccination of children of all ages is essential to return to normal. Most of the Covid-19 vaccines that have been used worldwide have been approved for use in adults.
Pfizer’s vaccine has been used in many countries/regions for adolescents under 16 years of age, and recently, Canada has begun to extend its use to children over 12 years of age.
Parents, school principals and public health officials elsewhere are anxiously waiting for more children to be vaccinated.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that Pfizer vaccines are safe and provide strong protection for young people based on clinical trials conducted by more than 2,000 12-15 year-old volunteers in the United States.
Pfizer is not the only company hoping to lower the age limit for its vaccines-Moderna recently stated that preliminary results of its research on teenagers aged 12 to 17 show that the drug has a strong protective effect and has no serious side effects.
