VACCINE FOR CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS FIVE SET FOR FDA APPROVAL

A vaccine for children could be one step closer as early as Monday. The FDA Vaccines and Related
Biological Products Advisory Committee begins meeting this morning (8:30AM ET) to consider a
request from Pfizer to amend its emergency use authorization to allow the use of its coronavirus
(COVID-19) vaccine in children aged five- to 11-years old.

Kid-size doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine appear safe and nearly 91% effective at
preventing symptomatic infections in 5- to 11-year-olds, according to study details released
Friday as the US considers opening vaccinations to that age group. The shots could begin in
early November, with the first children in line fully protected by Christmas, if regulators give the
go-ahead.
