Canada authorises Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children
aged 12 to 15
Canada is authorising the use of โปรโมชั่นslot Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine for use in children from the ages of 12 to 15,
the first dose to be allowed for people that young, the federal health ministry said on Wednesday (May 5).
"The department determined that this vaccine is safe and effective when used in this younger age group," Supriya
Sharma, a senior adviser at the ministry, told a briefing. "We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel."
Canada's federal government has bought tens of millions of doses of vaccines but critics complain the pace of
inoculation is lagging amid bottlenecks in the 10 provinces, which are responsible for administering the doses.
Sharma said Pfizer, which is working with German partner BioNTech SE, would be required to provide information
on the safety, efficacy and quality of the vaccine in the 12 to 15 age group.
About 20 per cent of the 1,249,950 cases of COVID-19 in Canada have been reported in people under the age of 19.
Canada has also recorded 24,396 deaths.
