US authorizes Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for 12-15 year olds
Recall that The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently grant the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to Adolescents ( aged 16 and older)
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said over 1.5 million Covid-19 cases has been reported in persons aged 11 to 17 years old to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention between March 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021.
In regards to these the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also authorized the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for children between the age range of 12 to 15 years old.
Therefore President Joe Biden stated that the authorization is a promising development in the fight against the virus
President Joe Biden last week talked on the importance of expanding vaccinations to 12 to 15-year-olds and stated that the authorities were “ready to move immediately” once the authorization came through.
He also added that 20,000 pharmacies in the country are ready to start vaccinating adolescents and doses will also be shipped to paediatricians.
Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research talking about the authorization states;
“If you are a parent who wants to protect your child or a teenager who is interested in getting vaccinated, today’s decision is a step closer to that goal.”
“Having a vaccine authorized for a younger population is a critical step in continuing to lessen the immense public health burden caused by the Covid-19 pandemic,”
Pfizer and its partner BioNTech said in March that their two-dose vaccine regimen was shown to be safe and highly effective in a trial of 2,260 12 to 15-year-olds.
Likewise Moderna and Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccines have also received emergency use authorizations from the FDA but only for individuals over the age of 18.
