I want to know — Why the hell does it take the FDA over 2.5 weeks to review & virtually discuss on Oct 26th the newly submitted Pfizer/BioNTech data on vaccines in kids 5-11… ➡️ during that same time, roughly📍 ~50 kids📍 will have died of #COVID19 in US alone in 2.5 weeks. 👀 pic.twitter.com/z4TQSiF37Z
Speaking soon with @EricaRHill @jimsciutto @CNNnewsroom: We are still on track to *potentially* have children 5 to 11 years old start receiving the #covid19 vaccine by Halloween. I trust the FDA to go through a rigorous regulatory process to ensure safety and effectiveness.
I know many are eager to hear this news: We have completed our formal request to the @US_FDA for Emergency Use Authorization of our COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 to <12 years of age.
🚨BREAKING: @pfizer /BioNTech asked FDA to authorize emergency use of their #COVID19 vaccine for kids 5 to 11 yo. The FDA plans to meet on Oct. 26 to consider it w/a ruling expected between Halloween & Thanksgiving. >28 million kids could be protected!😃 www.nytimes.com/2021/10/07/us/politics/pfizer-fda-authorization-children-5-11.html?referringSource=articleShare
