Earlier, Covid-19 vaccine manufactures BioNtech and Pfizer sought Emergency Use Authorization of their Covid vaccine for use in children between the age of 6 months and four years of age, reports said.

Once approved by the US based Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the two-shot regimen of these anti-Coronavirus vaccines will be the first vaccines for this age group in the US.

Reports stated that it was the FDA that approached the two companies for a vaccine for kids, meaning the process of approval of Covid-19 vaccine for children would be much quicker in this case.

FDA’s interim head Janet Woodcock was quoted by AFP as saying that the availability of a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine for kids under 4 years of age was a top priority at this juncture.
