Along with BioNTech SE, Pfizer has requested authorization from the Food and Drug Administration in the hopes that the vaccine will be available to children in this age group before the start of the school year next fall.

That's what they were granted last year to administer the vaccine to people 16 years and older.

While young people are far less likely to suffer severe effects from Covid-19 than older people are, they can still get sick, and they can pass the virus to others at greater risk. Now, a new study has pointed out that those taking the Moderna vaccine have reported more side effects than people who get the Pfizer/BioNTech jabs.

In late March they published the results of trials carried out with 2,260 adolescents in the United States who the companies said showed "robust anti-body responses".

The vaccine was "well tolerated with side effects generally consistent with those observed in participants 16 to 25 years of age", the companies said Friday.

Pfizer said that it planned to submit similar requests with other regulatory bodies around the globe in the coming days.

On the first day of the United Kingdom campaign for COVID-19 vaccination, there were reports of two cases of anaphylaxis - a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction - within minutes of administration of the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine.
