Moderna to ask Health Canada to authorize its COVID-19 vaccine for children aged six months to five years old.
Moderna says it's working on a submission to Health Canada for the approval of a COVID-19 vaccine for children under the age of 6.
Earlier today, the company asked regulators in the U.S. to authorize low doses of its vaccine for kids aged six months to five years old.
So far, Health Canada hasn't approved any COVID-19 vaccines for kids younger than 5.
To date, the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine has been approved for kids aged five to 11, and Moderna's Spikevax shot has been authorized for children aged six to 11.
