Pfizer for children under 5 is authorized by Thai authorities

The nation’s Food and Drug Administration’s secretary general made the approval official. This week, a government representative issued a warning, stating that the lifting of the Emergency Decree and dissolution of the CCSA will be carefully considered and is not a given. The dose will be changed for kids in this age range to 10 micrograms each dose. The dosage for kids aged 5 to 11 is 30mcg. The decree, which established the CCSA to address the coronavirus pandemic and went into effect on March 24, 2020, will continue to be in effect through September 30 in order to assess the Covid-19 situation and Thailand’s strategy. It will be possible to resume normal life while still keeping an eye on Covid thanks to that classification adjustment.

Children can receive booster shots with 3mcg each dosage eight weeks after their second shot, which is eight weeks after their second dose. “With three doses, the vaccine’s efficacy against Covid-19 will grow to 80.3 percent,” FDA Secretary-General Dr. Paisan Dankhum stated. According to the spokesman, the CCSA will perform one more assessment before the decree’s expiration date to ensure that it is safe to terminate it. Anucha Burapachaisri, a government spokesman, stated that the CCSA is developing policies and processes to shift from treating coronavirus as a potentially fatal illness to viewing it as a disease under monitoring. For children aged six months to under five, Pfizer’s Comirnaty Covid-19 vaccines have received approval from Thai regulators.
