The vaccine push is now targeting kids.
Pfizer is seeking emergency use authorization from the FDA to vax kids aged 5 to 11.
The FDA advisory committee will meet on Oct 26th to discuss the application.
Pfizer said Thursday that it had submitted an application to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine in children ages 5 to 11.
The FDA has previously said it would move quickly to review the application, “likely in a matter of weeks rather than months.”
An FDA advisory committee is meeting to discuss the application on Oct. 26.
Unvaccinated kids have a lower rate of dying from COVID than full-vaccinated adults.
A recent update from Public Health England suggests that children who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine have a lower risk of death after contracting the virus than fully vaccinated adults in all age groups.
Public Health England, a government agency, reported (pdf) that three children under the age of 18 died in England within 28 days of testing positive for COVID-19 out of a total of 167,832 cases over a three-week period. The data showed that none of the three who died were vaccinated.
In other age groups, people aged 18 to 29 and 30 to 39 are slightly more likely to die of the virus within 28 days of testing positive even if they have been vaccinated with two doses, said the report published on Sept. 9. Meanwhile, the total number of 18- to 29-year-olds who died after testing positive for COVID-19 within 28 days was 18, and 13 were unvaccinated. Forty-five people between the ages of 30 and 39 died of COVID-19, and 31 of them were not vaccinated.
