Singapore approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children between the ages of 12 to 15-years-old.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was previously given to people aged 16-years-old and above. Singapore’s Health Minister Ong Ye Yung said that the children aged 12 to 15 years will be vaccinated against COVID-19 with Pfizer-BioNTech.

Ong also co-chairs the multi-ministry task force on COVID-19. He said that the Health Sciences Authority and the expert committee on COVID-19 vaccines assessed the vaccine for children. During a virtual conference, he said “The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine demonstrated high efficacy and safety for this age group.”

Singapore also announced that people between the ages of 40 to 44 years can register for their vaccines from Wednesday. The Health Minister said that they should complete the vaccination program by the end of the year “if our supplies arrive as scheduled”.

Singapore also announced that instead of the doses being administered 3 to 4 weeks apart, they will be administered 6 to 8 weeks apart. This is to allow more people to receive the COVID-19 vaccine’s first dose.

In India, the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog announced that the Phase II/III clinical trials of Covaxin for people between the ages of 2 to 18 years will begin in 10 to 12 days. NITI Aayog member VK Paul said “Covaxin has been approved by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI), for Phase II/III clinical trials in the age group of 2 to 18 years. I have been told that trials will begin in the next 10-12 days.”

The clinical trial will take place in various sites including AIIMS Patna and AIIMS Delhi. In the trial, Covaxin will be given to 525 volunteers in two doses on day 0 and day 28

In the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination drive, Covaxin and Covishield are being used to vaccinate people above the age of 18 years.
