New datesbiontech reports 100% effectiveness in youth31.03.2021, 12:53 uhr | rtrgood tracking for 12 to 15 years old: the vaccine of biontech and pfizer is 100% effective according to a current study. The Covid-19 vaccine from biontech and pfizer is first found to be even more effective in young people than in adults. In the approval study for the use of 12 to 15 years old, the vakzin showed very high antibody responses, the two partners informed on Wednesday.
The vaccine had been well tolerated and had reached an effective 100% against Covid-19. To compare: the current admission for the use from 16 years is based on an efficiency of 95 percent. In Germany, the biontech vaccine has been used predominantly for older people over 80 years.
“children are particularly well protected by vaccination””The first results of the study at youth indicate that children are particularly well protected by vaccination,” said Biontech CEO ugur. In the study with 12- to 15-year-olds, 2260 young people from the usa took part. 18 Covid-19 cases occurred in the group which received a photo-medicament (placebo) and no cases in the vaccine group.
This was therefore comparable with those from 16 to 25 years old in the registration study with adults.
