Zhitong Finance APP learned that Health Canada announced on Friday that Pfizer (PFE.US) has approved a new coronavirus vaccine for children aged 5 to 11. This means that elementary school students can be vaccinated against the new crown. Previously, only children 12 years and older were eligible.

For children between 5 and 11 years old, the vaccine requires two doses, each with a dose of 10mcg, which is one-third that of adults. The dosage plan approved by Health Canada is 21 days between two injections.

Pfizer submitted the trial data to Health Canada for evaluation on October 1, and submitted the complete trial data on October 18. Pfizer’s clinical trial data show that the vaccine is 91% effective against the new coronavirus in this age group.

Health Canada wrote in a press release: “After a thorough and independent scientific review of the evidence, the Ministry of Health determined that the benefits of this vaccine outweigh the risks for children aged 5 to 11.”

Some vaccine concept stocks rose on Friday. Earlier, Austria announced that it would re-implement lockdown measures to deal with the new wave of coronavirus and ordered the nation’s population to be vaccinated against coronavirus. BioNTech (BNTX.US) rose more than 5%, Moderna (MRNA.US) rose nearly 5%, Novavax Pharmaceuticals (NVAX.US) closed up 0.68%; Pfizer fell more than 1%.
