Children aged 12 to 17, the European Union’s medicines agency has suggested Modern COVID-19 vaccination doses.
The goal, according to the British news agency Reuters, is to clear the way for the European Union to deploy a second vaccine for teenagers.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said on Friday that the Spikevax vaccination should be administered in teenagers in the same way that it is for adults over the age of 18, and that the vaccine induces antibodies that are similar to those seen in people aged 18 to 25.
Children must be vaccinated in order to protect huge populations against the coronavirus and its extremely infectious Delta version.
The vaccination was found to be safe and efficacious in teenagers by Moderna in May.
According to the EMA’s safety committee, the negative effects of vaccination in teenagers are similar to those reported in adults.
