Moderna Seeks Authorization for its COVID Vaccine in Younger Children
Shortly after Moderna filed for authorization of its COVID vaccine for children ages six (6) months and older, Anita Henderson, MD, pediatrician at The Pediatric Clinic and president of the Mississippi Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, spoke with Mississippi Public Broadcasting about what she is hearing from her young patients and their families.
“Most of the parents I have talked to are not necessarily concerned if it’s a Moderna product or a Pfizer product, they just want to have a product that is safe and effective for their children down to the age of six months,” Henderson said. “They really want to find something that will protect their children since the rest of their family has already had that opportunity.”
The FDA is expected to review both Pfizer and Moderna applications in June for their COVID-19 vaccines to include younger populations.
