Pfizer and BioNTech may make vaccine for children 6m - 4yrs
By Candyce Steiner
Starting in March 2021, Pfizer started clinical trials for the Covid-19 vaccine for 6 month to 5 year old children. They are still trying to find families for the trials. Although these trials typically last two years, the FDA asked for data so that they can use this Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use. This would make it so children who are 6m - 5yrs old would be able to get the vaccine. The CDC is saying that the vaccine is the best way to fight Covid-19.
There are plenty of other ways to fight Covid-19 besides the vaccine. Some of these ways are staying hydrated, resting, and taking vitamins to help keep your immune system strong to fight off the virus. The CDC says the age group of 4 years and under are less likely to get Covid-19.
There are kids who are more likely to get Covid-19 based on ethnicity and underlying health issues. According to data shown on February 5, 2022, Hispanics are more likely to get Covid-19, but are also more likely to recover from it. American Indians also contract the virus more frequently but are more likely to die from it than other ethnic groups.
The CDC also shows that in the 9th region (California, Nevada and New Mexico), the 0 - 4 yrs age group is the least likely to contract Covid-19 with a 7.4% rate of contraction. The 5 - 11 yrs age group have a 9.8% contraction rate for comparison. The 0 - 4 yrs age group are the least likely to die from Covid-19, while the 75+ yrs group is most likely, with a death rate of 0.08%.
Pfizer says that the Covid-19 vaccine is the best way to defend against the virus. The age group of 6m - 2yrs showed an immune response to the virus, while the 2 - 5yrs group showed no immune response with 2 doses of the vaccine. Pfizer is working on a third dose that will be given at least 2 months after the second.
Dr. Thomas Murray, a Yale Medicine Pediatric Infectious Diseases Specialist, has mentioned that, while 2 doses might not protect you fully, it will prevent hospitalization. Pfizer says that “the vaccine may not protect everyone.”
A committee will meet on February 15 to decide on whether or not to “authorize Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for kids under 5”, says Cnet.com/health/medical/pfizer-asks-fda-to-authorize-covid-vaccine-for-kids-6-months-through-4-years/. Pfizer thinks this will be completed in “the first half of 2022.”
