Today Pfizer announced they plan to “to extend their rolling submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking to amend the Emergency Use Authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to include children 6 months through 4 years of age, which had been requested by FDA.”
Two doses failed to provide protection. Pfizer says they will wait until they have results from a third dose being given in their clinical trial before they move forward and ask the FDA for Emergency Use Authorization for the age group. They estimate they will have trial results by early April.
