Pfizer says its Covid vaccine trial for kids ages 12 to 15 is fully enrolled​


Pfizer said it had fully enrolled its Covid-19 vaccine trial in kids ages 12 to 15, a key step before the vaccine could be used in that age group.

The study, an extension of the one used to support the company’s Emergency Use Authorization of the vaccine in people 16 and older, has enrolled 2,259 kids between 12 and 15, Pfizer told CNBC Friday. Its entry on a government website for clinical trials was updated to note it’s no longer recruiting subjects.

The vaccine, developed with German partner BioNTech, was authorized for people ages 16 and older in December. Trials in younger age groups are necessary to ensure the correct dose, as well as safety and efficacy in those different groups, said Dr. Evan Anderson, a pediatrician at Emory University School of Medicine.

“I am very uncomfortable sending my children back to school, where — despite the best efforts of the school — there is a real risk for contracting Covid-19,” Anderson told CNBC in October.

While children are less affected by Covid-19 than adults, they do still catch the virus and get sick. Some have even died. More than 2.5 million cases of Covid-19 had been reported in children as of Jan. 14, about 13% of all cases, according to a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association.

“Children can still get sick and die from Covid-19,” said Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center and an infectious diseases physician at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “As many children this past year died from Covid-19 as died from influenza. And we recommend an influenza vaccine for children.”

Offit also pointed out that children can suffer from a disease called multisystem inflammatory syndrome associated with Covid-19, “which can be debilitating.”

There have been 1,659 cases of the syndrome in children, referred to as MIS-C, and 26 deaths associated with it as of Jan. 8, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been 78 total deaths from Covid-19 among kids 4 and under, and 178 in kids 5 to 17, CDC datashow, although those numbers don’t account for all deaths reported from the U.S.
