Clinical Trials for Kids 6 Months - 15 Years

Pfizer and Moderna, two of the makers of COVID-19 vaccines, are starting the next phase of clinical trials in children and are now recruiting pediatric patients starting at 6 months old to 15 years.

While the virus has more heavily impacted adults, to defeat the pandemic, children will also have to be immunized, which means trials are necessary to make sure vaccines are safe for them.

Kelsey-Seybold’s Chief of Pediatrics Jessica Lanerie, M.D., answers commonly asked questions about involving kids in COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials.
