Pfizer vaccine safe and effective on children ages 12 and up, study finds

Pfizer says its vaccine is safe and effective on children ages 12 and up.

That’s the latest round of good news for the vaccine manufacturer that has seen good results in adults since rollout in the U.S. a few months ago.


Experts say that vaccinating children of all ages will be critical to ending the pandemic. It’s also viewed as an important step in getting schools ‘back to normal’.

The data shows that there were no cases of COVID-19 among fully vaccinated adolescents- compared to 18 of those given the placebo. Altogether the study included 2,260 participants.
