This month’s Pfizer vaccine is approved for 16 and older adults. Testing started with October in children as young as 12 years of age and is expected to take some more months.

Moderna, which is expected to become the second COVID-19 greenlit vaccine in the U.S., has started the recruitment of study participants between the ages of 12 and 17 this month, and will monitor them for a year. Testing of children younger than 12 years is scheduled to begin in early 2021.

Even though children usually don’t get very sick from COVID-19, they can spread the virus to others, At least 1.6 million youth have been infected, 8,000 have been hospitalized and 162 have died from the virus.
