Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine Approved in Europe for Children Ages 12 to 15” – below is their description.
European regulators cleared Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE’s Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 12 to 15, preparing the way for mass inoculations of younger teenagers across the continent.
The green light from the European Medicines Agency gives Europe, whose immunization campaign was initially fraught with difficulties, the first vaccine in its arsenal for younger adolescents. The shot was already cleared for people as young as 16.
“It’s an important step in the fight against the pandemic,” Marco Caveleri, the regulator’s head of biological health threats and vaccines strategy, said on Friday.
The U.K. also added to its arsenal on Friday. It cleared a vaccine from Johnson & Johnson, the first single-dose shot to be authorized in Britain against the disease.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
