Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use
The Commission for Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EDA) has recommended that the use of the Comirnaty vaccine by Biontech / Pfizer against COVID-19 be given to children aged 5 to 11 years.
The vaccine is already used on children that are 12 years old.
The National Committee Coordinating the COVID-19 Vaccination Activities (CNCAV) announced on Monday that it was decided to remove the age limit for the administration of the vaccine produced by the AstraZeneca company.
The immunisation of the population with the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will start in Romania on February 15, and to that end 180 new vaccination offices will open, according to the National COVID-19 Vaccination Coordination Committee (CNCAV).
