The Vaccine Fascists Are Coming For Your Kids: Pfizer To Push FDA On Approval For 5 Year Olds

From The Washington Times

Pfizer on Monday said its COVID-19 vaccine is safe and generated a “robust” antibody response in children aged 5 to 11, a positive sign as parents clamor to protect their children against the virus.

The company said its data were from a study of 2,200 children who received two doses, three weeks apart. Each dose contained about 10 micrograms, or about one-third of the dosage for teens and adults.

Pfizer said it will submit its data to the Food and Drug Administration as soon as possible. It must complete the trials and submit efficacy results later this year.

“Over the past nine months, hundreds of millions of people ages 12 and older from around the world have received our COVID-19 vaccine,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said. “We are eager to extend the protection afforded by the vaccine to this younger population, subject to regulatory authorization, especially as we track the spread of the delta variant and the substantial threat it poses to children.”
