Clinical trials are underway to determine the safety of the Pfizer and Modern Covid-19 vaccines for children under 12 years of age. Doctors say the data could be released next month to allow for emergency treatment later this year.
A doctor overseeing the Moderna clinical trial at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago says they hope the permit will be available to children between the ages of 5 and 11, and young children at the end of the year.
A doctor supervising the Moderna clinical trial at Lourie Children’s Hospital in Chicago says he expects the license to be issued to children between the ages of 5 and 11 and young children by the end of the year.

As a result, Pfizer is scheduled to be given to children from next month. Coronavirus vaccination is now being successfully performed on children over 12 years of age in the United States.
