Pfizer’s EUA for children aged 5 to 11 is expected to be approved before 2022, according to the PH.

Pfizer BioNTech has submitted for an emergency use authorization (EUA) in the Philippines, enabling the administration of its coronavirus vaccines to children aged 5 to 11, according to Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. of the National Task Force (NTF) against Covid-19.

Pfizer has officially requested an adjustment to its EUA, according to Galvez, who is also the vaccine czar, permitting the use of its vaccine for Filipinos aged 5 to 11.

“We expect more or less na (that) before the end of the year ay mayroon na po itong EUA (the EUA will be authorized),” Galvez said in a prerecorded Talk to the People with President Rodrigo Duterte.

Director-General of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Eric Domingo previously stated that the country’s vaccination experts are now assessing Pfizer’s application.

No other vaccine company, according to Domingo, has filed a similar application.

Galvez added that if the vaccine is authorized, vaccinations for children in this age group might begin in the first quarter of next year.

By the end of this year, the government hopes to have vaccinated at least 80% of the total population of youngsters aged 12 to 17.

On October 29, the FDA in the United States approved the use of Pfizer vaccines for children aged 5 to 11.
