Pfizer just announced its COVID-19 vaccine is safe for kids as young as 12!!! They say the shot is 100% effective in kids aged 12 to 15-year-old.
Breaking as of this morning… The results of the new Pfizer trial showed that the vaccine recorded 100% efficacy against the virus. Out of the more than 1,000 participants who got the vaccine, none developed a COVID-19 infection.
“We share the urgency to expand the authorization of our vaccine to use in younger populations and are encouraged by the clinical trial data from adolescents between the ages of 12 and 15,” said Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said in a press release. “We plan to submit these data to FDA as a proposed amendment to our Emergency Use Authorization in the coming weeks and to other regulators around the world, with the hope of starting to vaccinate this age group before the start of the next school year.”
