Corona Vaccine: The worry of parents is going to go away soon amidst the fear of third wave of corona in children. Corona vaccine companies Pfizer and BioNTech have said that some trials have shown that their vaccine is safe and creates a strong immunity in children between the ages of 5 and 11 years.
Food and Drug Administration approval pending
Pfizer and BioNTech said on Monday it would apply to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medical Agency (EMA) for permission to vaccinate children by the end of this month. Now there is a possibility that after getting the approval for emergency use, this vaccine can be given to children.
Trial on primary school going children
Let us tell you that Pfizer tested the vaccine dose with very small doses on children going to primary school. According to the company, after the second dose of this vaccine, the antibodies fighting the corona virus in children aged 5 to 11 years were as strong as they are found in adolescents and youth.
Research on six month old babies soon
The company says that trials can start soon on children aged two to five years and six months to two years. In Phase I, II and III trials, 4,500 children between the ages of six months and eleven years can be tested at 90 locations in the US, Finland, Poland and Spain. Also the difference between doses can be up to 21 days.
Vaccine will save you from getting into serious condition
In this case, vaccine expert Dr. Kristin Oliver says that this is a relief news. We have been waiting for a long time for vaccines to come out for children of this age. He said, although children are at lower risk of infection from the delta variant than adults, many children continue to develop serious conditions due to the infection.
