“We and @BioNTech_Group officially submitted our request to @US_FDA for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of our #COVID19 vaccine in children 5 to <12,” the company said.
“We’re committed to working with the FDA with the ultimate goal of helping protect children against this serious public health threat.”
Pfizer has yet to make a full submission to Health Canada, but has sent in initial trial data to the Canadian regulator.
The company has previously said it hopes to make a full submission by mid-October.
