  • Moderna asks Health Canada for approval to use vaccine in kids 12+

The Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine was "well-tolerated" in children and there were no "major concerns" in terms of side effects, the Amsterdam-based European Medicines Agency had informed.

Pfizer-BioNTech's shot is now the only one approved for use in children 12 to 18 years old.

The vaccine has also been authorised for use in children as young as 12 in the United States and Canada.

In a Gallup poll released Monday, 24 percent of U.S adults said they don't plan to be vaccinated against COVID-19, compared to 60 percent who said they have already been fully vaccinated, four percent who have been partially vaccinated, and 12 percent who plan to be vaccinated.

Britain's finance ministry said Saturday morning's talks between the G7 finance ministers had been "productive". Furthermore, they will urge "equitable, safe and affordable access to Covid-19 vaccines" everywhere.

Children with COVID-19 mostly develop only mild symptoms or no symptoms, but remain at risk of becoming seriously ill, and can spread the virus.

Moderna, which is behind one of two mRNA vaccines now approved for use in Canada, announced last month that its late-stage "TeenCOVE" study "met its primary immunogenicity endpoint, successfully bridging immune responses to the adult vaccination".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Monday that over 170.8 million people had received at least one dose of the COVID vaccine, accounting for 51.5% of the US population.

"The vaccine efficacy in the almost 2,500 adolescents who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was observed to be 100% when using the same case definition as in the Phase 3 COVE study in adults", the biotechnology company added.
