Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Pfizer CEO: COVID-19 vaccine data for kids will be submitted to FDA in ‘days’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said Sunday that COVID-19 vaccine data for children ages 5 to 11 will be ready to be reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration within days.

“I think we are going to submit this data any day, so it’s a question of days, not weeks, and then it’s up to the FDA to be able to review the data and come to their conclusions,” Bourla told ABC TV’s “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.

The children in the trials received two doses of their specially formulated vaccine — or what amounted to about “one-fifth” of the size of the immunization given to the general population, Bourla said.

“If [government regulators] approve it, we will be ready with our manufacturing to provide this new formulation of the vaccine because the vaccine that the kids will receive … is a different formulation,” Bourla said.

Currently, only people ages 12 and older are currently able to get vaccinated with Pfizer’s vaccine.
