Pfizer-BioNTech say COVID-19 vaccine safe, protective in kids aged 5-11CEO of Pfizer says company plans to submit results to regulators 'with urgency'

Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech said on Monday their COVID-19 vaccine induced a robust immune response in five- to 11-year-olds, and they plan to ask for authorization to use the vaccine in children in that age range in Canada, the United States, Europe and elsewhere as soon as possible.
The companies said the vaccine generated an immune response in the five- to 11-year-olds in their Phase II/III clinical trial that matched what they had previously observed in 16- to 25-year-olds. The safety profile was also generally comparable to the older age group, they said.
"Since July, pediatric cases of COVID-19 have risen by about 240 per cent in the U.S. — underscoring the public health need for vaccination," Pfizer chief executive Albert Bourla said in a news release.
"These trial results provide a strong foundation for seeking authorization of our vaccine for children five to 11 years old, and we plan to submit them to the FDA and other regulators with urgency."
Pfizer Canada spokesperson Christina Antoniou said in an email to CBC News that the company plans to file the data to Health Canada but couldn't provide specific timelines at this time.
"To date, we have been working closely with Health Canada and submitting to them new data regarding this vaccine when it becomes available," she said. "We share the urgency to provide the data that could help support the decision by regulatory authorities to make the vaccine available to school-aged children as early as possible."
Health Canada has already approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people as young as 12 years old.
In a statement to CBC News, Health Canada said that all manufacturers of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in Canada are conducting or planning studies in adolescents and younger children, including children from 6 months to 11 years of age.
It said it anticipates vaccine manufacturers will provide data regarding children in the coming months, but has so far not received any submission for the approval of any COVID-19 vaccine in children under 12 years of age.
Could have forgone over a million illegal aliens infected with the delta variant, no vaccinations and no tracking while clandestinely flying and bussing them around the continental US to infect and reinfect areas that had a handle on covid. Almost like Native Americans and smallpox blankets. I could be cynical and think the longer the dems make this last, the more power they gain and the more rights the citizens lose. Nah, that's silly talkBad choices have consequences.
Could have refrained from politicizing early counter-measures, but failed to resist temptation to seek political advantage.

Could have stroked Trump's ego and manipulated him by giving credit for OWS and then letting him do the heavy lifting of persuading "his" followers that "his" vaccines were awesome. But, Orange Man must get nothing.
Could have foregone the restaurants/vacation getaways/parties/galas after ordering the peons to mask up and stay home.
Kinda sounds like you’re alleging that the current US government, as a covert policy, deliberately stoked the spread of Covid using the mass transportation of illegal aliens. Surely I’m reading this wrong.Could have forgone over a million illegal aliens infected with the delta variant, no vaccinations and no tracking while clandestinely flying and bussing them around the continental US to infect and reinfect areas that had a handle on covid.
