I’m not exactly sure what parents would be willingly signing their children up to be ‘testers’ for a COVID vaccine study, but apparently 6,750 kids in the U.S. and Canada will be part of the testing for a child COVID vaccine.
This seems suspiciously odd to me because last I heard kids were not in danger from the virus. I thought the mortality rate for young people was .004%? So what exactly is the need for the vaccine? Help me to understand….
WASHINGTON DC – Moderna has begun testing its COVID-19 vaccine on children and infants between the ages of six months and 12 years old in a study, as the pharmaceutical company seeks to expand approval for its vaccine to children.
Moderna announced on Tuesday that the first participants in the KidCOVE study on pediatric COVID-19 vaccinations had been dosed. Moderna is the first of the companies with vaccines authorized in the U.S. to launch testing among infants.
The research expects to enroll 6,750 children older than six months and younger than 12 years old in the U.S. and Canada. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority will assist in the study. (read more)
