    Default Please post the latest on Covid vaccines for kids

    I am starting this thread because I believe a lot of us want to keep up with where things are regarding vaccines being available for kids and teens. I went looking for the link someone posted on where things are with Pfizer in terms of their teen study (which I believe is "completed" and I know they are now studying a younger age group, but wish I knew more on what their next steps are with the teen study/data. I couldn't find the exact link that someone posted that seemed to be a direct link to Pfizer updates, so if anyone has that will you please post? Also, would love it if people post any relevant updates to kid/teen vaccine.

    Here is an article I found today

    Based on what I have heard, it sounds like they completed enrollment in the 12-15 yo trial in January, which means they need to collect data at least through March for an EUA, or July/August for approval. If they do an EUA (I think likely), then it will probably be June/July to get the EUA. On clinicaltrials.gov, they are showing a primary completion date in early August, which makes sense if they are doing a 6 month follow up after the second dose. They will likely submit interim data earlier, like they did for the adult indication.

    Yes, this. I check clinicaltrials.gov frequently to see if they'll update that primary completion date (could go faster IF they are more "events" to count) and bump it up...my fingers are crossed!!

    I'm also hoping they will be able to collect enough robust data for EUA sooner rather than later...would LOVE for my kids to be vaccinated before the start of the next school year (selfishly).

    Wow, thanks for posting! Guess we will see!

    Those of you checking clinicaltrial.gov, is this the trial you check https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/...&draw=2&rank=3 ? I am not sure I am finding the right one.

    No, that one is a manufacturing lot trial.

    This is the one:
    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/...&draw=2&rank=9

    If the link doesn't work, the trial number is NCT04368728.

    The primary end date will not change at this point because they have to run it through August to get 6 months of follow up. If the data looks good, they may be able to submit with just 2 months follow up. I am not sure how likely that is since there are far fewer adolescent participants, and they are more likely to have asymptomatic cases.

    I wish that pediatrician's office would have shared why they think it might get approved earlier than August.

    I looked at their website (Senders Pediatrics). It appears they were a site for the Pfizer teen trial, if I am reading the info on the website correctly. If that is the case, I would think they would know what they are talking about?

    It really surprised me that the adolescent trials are 2,000-3,000 participants when the adult trials were so large at 40,000-50,000. I've read on why that is the case (kids less likely to become ill so looking at strong immune response), but still find it so surprising.
