Pfizer seeks vaccine authorization for 12-15 year olds

Pfizer-BioNTech asked for authorisation Friday to use their Covid-19 vaccine on 12-15 year olds in the United States.

The companies said in a statement that they plan to make similar requests to other regulatory authorities worldwide in coming days.
