Pfizer Vaccine expected to be expanded for 12 to 15 years olds
On March 31, 2021 Pfizer-BioNTech announced that, in a Phase 3 Trial in adolescents 12- to 15-years-old with or without prior coronavirus infection, the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine demonstrated 100% efficacy in preventing severe COVID-19 disease in children. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently evaluating the Pfizer vaccine to expand the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to include those 12 to 15 years of age. While we are still awaiting to hear of their decision, we anticipate that it may be authorized by the end of this week at the earliest. If the EUA is authorized and you are interested in vaccinating your child as early as next week, we will be offering Pfizer at the following locations: Victory Christian Fellowship - 5220 Whitby Ave. Philadelphia, PA 19143 from 10 am - 4 pm on: Monday, May 10 Tuesday, May 11 Thursday, May 13 Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church - 2800 W Cheltenham Ave. Philadelphia, PA, 19150 from 10 am - 4 pm on: Monday, May 17 Thursday, May 20 Friday, May 21 Christian Stronghold Church - 4701 Lancaster Ave. Philadelphia, PA 19131 from 10 am - 4 pm on: Monday, May 24 Tuesday, May 25 Thursday, May 27 If you have a child who is at least 16-years-old and interested in receiving the Pfizer vaccine, this week we will be offering Pfizer at Christian Stronghold Church on May 6 and May 7 from 10 am - 4 pm. We will continue to offer Pfizer for those 16-years-old and over at the locations and dates mentioned above. Please continue to be well and stay safe. Black Doctors COVID19 Consortium
