Biontech announces corona vaccine for 5 to 11 year olds in a few weeks

Vaccine manufacturer Biontech announces a corona vaccine for children between the ages of five and eleven. The founder of the Mainz company gives details.

Mainz – Biontech wants to apply for approval of its Corona * vaccine for children between the ages of five and eleven in the coming weeks. To this end, the results of a study would be presented to the authorities worldwide, “including here in Europe”, said the medical director and Biontech co-founder Özlem Türeci to the news magazine Spiegel. “We are already preparing the production. The vaccine is the same, but less dosed, and less has to be filled. “

According to Biontech, the study results are available and only need to be processed for the approval authorities. “It looks good, everything is going according to plan,” Biontech boss Ugur Sahin told the news magazine. By the end of the year, the study data on younger children aged six months and over are also expected.

Biontech founders urge corona vaccinations

At the same time, those responsible for Biontech * urged everyone to do everything possible to convince undecided people to vaccinate in the coming weeks. “As a society, we still have around 60 days to avoid a harsh winter,” said Sahin. “We should do what we can to mobilize as many people as possible in these two months.”

Japanese study: Mu variant of the coronavirus could undermine vaccination protection

In the past few days, worrying findings about the mu variant of the coronavirus had become known. The mutant apparently has the ability to undermine the vaccination protection in those who have been vaccinated with Biontech and those who have recovered. At least that’s what Japanese researchers report in a new study that has not yet been verified by other scientists.

The Mu variant (B.1.621) is more resistant to antibodies from Covid-19 convalescents and Biontech vaccinees than any other variant observed by the World Health Organization (WHO), including the beta variant (B.1.351). The Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko) in Germany has so far only spoken out in favor of corona vaccinations for all children and adolescents from the age of twelve.
