The U.S. government is about to allow the use of vaccine from Pfizer company to inoculate the children aged from 12 to 15. The vaccination will begin already next week, writes The Guardian.

"An approval is highly anticipated after the drugmakers said in March that the vaccine had been found to be safe, effective and produced robust antibody responses in 12- to 15-year-olds in a clinical trial (...) If an approval for the 12-15-year-olds is granted, the CDC's (U.S. Centre for Disease Control, - 112 International) vaccine advisory panel will probably meet the following day to review the clinical trial data and make recommendations for the vaccine’s use in adolescents, the report said", reads the story.
