US Authorises Pfizer Vaccine For Children As Young As 12

The US on Monday has authorised the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for 12 - to 15-year-olds amid a push to get the shot into more Americans' arms. 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it was "a significant step in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic".

"This is a promising development in our fight against the virus. If you are a parent who wants to protect your child, or a teenager who is interested in getting vaccinated, today’s decision is a step closer to that goal" said President Joe Biden.
