The vaccination campaign for COVID-19 represents a crucial part in trying to defeat the pandemic once and for all, according to experts. They strongly believe that without getting as many people vaccinated as possible, the coronavirus is here to stay with us for a lot of time.

COVID vaccines for younger children represent a subject that was largely debated, and plenty of objections occurred across social media. Pfizer and BioNTech are optimistic about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines for the little ones.

Kids could have to wait until November for receiving vaccines

USA TODAY writes that kids might not get the Pfizer COVID shots until November, according to some reports. According to The Wall Street Journal, the companies would submit an application for authorization of emergency use in the following weeks. The initial aim was to finish things at the end of the current month. But while the companies didn’t start the official process, according to Reuters, it may mean that authorization could be postponed until November.

The companies submitted clinical trial data to the FDA, showing that their vaccine is both safe and effective for children between the ages of 5 to 11 years old.

There’s no fooling around when it comes to COVID-19, as the disease can even be fatal. It can also damage your senses of smell and taste so much that it will take a while for them to recover even if you’ve been recovered from the coronavirus. The Delta variant is also known as highly infectious, and there’s no surprise that it became the dominant coronavirus strain.
