Pfizer Shares Youth Vaccine Research with FDA 

Pfizer has submitted the initial data around COVID-19 vaccine use in those ages 5 to 11, bringing vaccinations for this age group one step closer to fruition. Data was shared with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for initial review.  

The vaccine research included more than 2,200 participants age 5 to 11 years of age from the U.S. and other countries. Results demonstrated that a two dose regimen of 10 µg (approximately 1/3 of the dose provided to older age groups) administered 21 days apart developed antibody levels in children that were just a strong as those found in teenagers and young adults getting regular strength doses. 

Pfizer has indicated it plans to file an application with the FDA in the “coming weeks” to authorize use among children 5 to 11 years old.  An estimated 100 million people age 12 & older in the United States have already been vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines. Continue reading Pfizer’s news release to learn more
