Pharmaceuticals Pfizer and Moderna are testing vaccines against Covid-19 in children 12 years and older. The results should be known in the summer, advances the newspaper “The New York Times”.
Depending on the findings of these trials, the tests may progress on younger children, but this will only happen after the results have reached the older ones.
If all goes well in clinical trials, it will take the US authorities a few weeks to give the vaccine for children a “green light”.
According to The New York Times, pharmaceutical companies Johnson & Johnson, Novavax and AstraZeneca are also considering testing vaccines for Covid-19 in children, but the process is still long overdue.
The adult population, which has already begun to be vaccinated, is the most affected by the new coronavirus pandemic.
Looking at the Portuguese case, there are four confirmed deaths by Covid-19 in children and young people up to 19 years old, in a total of 15,034 deaths registered since the beginning of the pandemic.
