The US Food & Drug Administration has already approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children aged 12-15 in America and now the pharmaceutical giant has formally asked the UK’s Regulatory Agency to allow it to be used in Britain, according to the Telegraph.

"We can confirm that the companies have submitted a request to the MHRA to expand the use of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid vaccine to adolescents in the UK,” a Pfizer spokesperson told the paper.

But Professor Anthony Harden, Deputy Chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccination & Immunisation, which advises who should be given the vaccine, is urging caution.

“Children are not little adults, you’ve still got safety considerations to look at quite carefully because they can respond differently to different pharmaceutical drug interventions,” he told the Telegraph. ”We can't be absolutely clear that just because it’s completely safe in adults it will be safe in children. We need to find that out from the data.”.

The UK already has already bought 40 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and last month it managed to get its hands on an extra 60 million.

A trial showed that Pfizer had 100 per cent efficacy amongst 12 to 15-year-olds, one of the age groups considered most responsible for spreading Covid-19.

The JCVI will be closely watching the rollout of the Pfizer vaccine for teenagers in the US before recommending it be used in the UK.

Pfizer is also reportedly conducting trials of the vaccine in children who are six months to 11 years old.

The number of people complaining about Mandatory vaccines, who don't realise that they have been having these since before they could even walk is hilarious.

The past year and a half have proven that healthy children are at virtually zero risk from SARSCoV2/covid. Why even consider subjecting them to a risky novel drug trial? Vaccinate the old, infirm and fearful adults and FREE OUR KIDS.

not my young healthy 12 year old you won't. This is force through a vaccine passport/certificate and moving the goal posts daily. First old and vulnerable then under 60's then under 55's then 40's and to get back to normal we must jab healthy kids that are not effected by the virus with an emergency approved with no real date available with poison? no thanks

We, the lady and I, got our first Biontech (Pfizer) (Pfizer) last Wednesday.

(Biontech develops the vaccine and Pfizer sells it. Same with Swedish-British AstraZeneca; the students at Oxford developed the vaccine and AstraZeneca sells the shit.)

Now we hope for the second dose in a week at our university hospital !!!

Now to Majorca Bulletin's question:

No, you will not receive the Protestant Biontech vaccine.

You need freezers that have a temperature of minus 70-80 Celsius (also Swedish, ie Celsius).

Have your politicians bought these super freezers?! Do you think that they are on a shelf for you and that it is just a matter of buying / picking them up?! Do you have the skills to organize everything around this vaccine/freezers?!

No, you have to make do with the older vaccines just like the Arabs, Africans, Asians (triple A :) et cetera.
