EMA to decide on coronavirus vaccine for children under 12

The European Union (EU) has said that it will soon make its first coronavirus vaccines available for children under 12.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) on Thursday said they will decide on whether to approve the Pfizer/BioNTech jab for children aged five and over.

It was reported that the experts responsible for the decision have been reviewing data on the risks and efficacy of the vaccine in 5-11-years-olds for over two months and now plan to finalise their assessment.

However, if the EMA experts give the green light, the EU Commission still has to give official approval but that is considered a formality.
