By Zoila Palma: Countries around the world have launched their vaccination campaigns in an attempt to reduce the threat of COVID-19.
Vaccines have been made available for adults and children aged 12 years old and older.
Pfizer has shared that it completed phase 1 clinical trials and will now proceed to phases 11 and 111 with lower-dose trials in six-month-olds to 11-year-olds.
Pfizer and BioNTech are testing the vaccine at lower doses in grade-schoolers than teenagers, and at even lower doses for younger children.
Both pharmaceutical companies have received authorization to provide vaccines to adolescents in the U.S. after studying the vaccine and its effects in 2,260 kids aged 12 to 15 years old.
The trials concluded that the vaccine helped teens develop an antibody response to COVID-19, was safe, prevented infections, and had no intolerable side effects.
The trial sites will be U.S., Finland, Poland, and Spain.
Meanwhile, the public is still advised to wear their face masks, practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings.
