Covid19 : Pfizer’s says Covid vaccine 90% effective for kids
Pfizer’s study of younger children found the low-dose shots proved safe, with similar or fewer temporary side effects such as sore arms, fever or achiness that teens experience.
Kid-size doses of Pfizer’s vaccine appear to be safe and almost 91% effective at preventing symptomatic infections in 5-11 year-olds, according to study details released.
The U.S. FDA posted their analysis ahead of the meeting to debate on the whether or not the shots are safe and ready for children. in their analysis, the FDA scientists came to a conclusion that in almost every probability that the vaccine’s benefit for preventing hospitalisation and death from the virus would outweigh any serious potential side effects in children.
