The news about covid-19 vaccines continues to pour in. Check out the latest reports that have lots of parents cheering.
Emergency use authorization of covid vaccine
Market Watch just noted that there’d been a lot of encouraging data for parents on Thursday when Pfizer and German partner BioNTech said they had submitted an application for emergency-use authorization of their vaccine in 5- to 11-year-old children.
It’s been revealed that the FDA will now review the safety and efficacy of the vaccine before deciding whether to authorize shots for that age group.
The firms said in late September that there have been reports involving “data from a late-stage trial of the vaccine in that demographic showed it was safe and effective and said data from a trial in children 6 months old to less than 2 years of age would come in the fourth quarter.”
These reports come as a relief for some parents. This is happening especially for those who have worried about their children’s exposure to the virus now they are back in school settings.
Check out the following relevant tweet:
