To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the (a) MHRA and (b) JCVI have plans to examine the study undertaken by Pfizer on the safety and efficacy of covid-19 vaccinations for children.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
28 April 2021
The Pfizer study is not being conducted in the United Kingdom, therefore the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) currently do not have any data on the study. The MHRA will review any submission to allow vaccination of children if and when it is received from Pfizer. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation will be examining the study undertaken by Pfizer on the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccinations for children in due course.
