America Approves Vaccine Injection Against 6-Month-Old Babies


 'After this baby near Malaysia not only has a BCG container but also a Covid vaccine stamp.'

Not only adults but children and babies as young as 6 months will receive the Covid-19 vaccination injection after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gives approval.

According to the official statement of FDA Commissioner, Robert M.Califf, under the amended emergency user authorization (EUA) vaccines produced by Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech can be administered to children in the United States.

Califf added that the decision was made based on the mutation rate of the Covid-19 virus and wanted to increase the chances of protection against children.

FDA outlines Moderna's bivalent* vaccine under EUA approval for use in individuals aged 6 months to 5 years as a single booster dose, 2 months after completion of monovalent primary vaccination**.

*The vaccine is a mixture of original virus components and omicron variants to form protection against Omicron mutations.

**2 series of main injections for individuals aged 6 years and above that are allowed under the emergency use of Covid-19.

For Pfizer-BioNTech, children 6 months to 4 years old who have not yet received the 3rd injection of the monovalent Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, get bivalent approval as the 3rd dose.

In the meantime, the Director of the FDA's Biological Research and Evaluation Center insisted that parents and guardians allow children to receive the vaccine injection as it is the best defense against Covid-19.

It is also seen to be in line with one of the new security measures introduced by China after easing the restrictions of the zero Covid-19 policy by increasing the vaccination rate.

On the other hand, the patent lawsuit between Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech continues without any new updates.
