Article in nst.com.my Pfizer and BioNTech said Tuesday they had begun submitting data to the United States Food and Drug Administration for the highly anticipated authorisation of their Covid-19 vaccine in children aged 5 to 11.
Children have been infected in greater numbers in the latest wave driven by the Delta variant, and inoculating this age group is seen as key to keeping schools open and helping end the pandemic.
The companies said in a statement, “These data have been shared with the FDA for the agency’s initial review.”
“A formal submission to request Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) of the companies’ Covid-19 vaccine in children 5 to under 12 years of age is expected to follow in the coming weeks,” they added, with submissions to the European Medicines Agency and others also planned.

Waiting, Waiting, Waiting
My children are doing fine I think. They have been home like forever. I have just purchased a new Dell Inspiron notebook (with SSD) for my wife since my son is using her HP notebook (3rd year and super slow already) everyday for lessons and she has no access to the notebook to do her work. My daughter is using my Macbook Air which has already reached 8 years and still doing extremely fine. I am using a Business level Lenovo. Yea, in a family of 4 people, we have 4 notebooks.
So, now it’s just waiting for cases to come down to even more manageable level. Covid-19 vaccinations certainly helps too. With cases coming down, the ICU cases will also come down too. Soon, the hospitals could also start normalising everything too. Waiting, waiting and waiting.
Starting the evaluation meant that it is many months before before any vaccination can happen. Since we are in Malaysia and the vaccines are from the US, so it will be even more months after that before we would have the supply to do the same; vaccinating the 2-5 year olds. Covid-19 vaccinations will be like a never-ending story for sometime yet.
