Pfizer/BioNTech has applied for approval of its corona vaccine for children up to five years of age. According to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the approval could be granted at the end of the year, according to the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
On Thursday, the EMA wrote on Twitter that they expect to make a decision during December on whether the vaccine could be approved for use on children aged five to eleven years.
“It is a shorter schedule compared to similar assessments,” the EMA wrote.
After the EMA has made a decision on the vaccine, the European Commission (EC) will officially say “yes” or “no.” The EC usually follows the EMA’s decision.
Today, in Norway, children up to the age of twelve are offered corona vaccines.
