Atrium Health announced on Monday a new Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine clinical trial for healthy children ages six months and five years old will be launched at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.
According to the news release, the same vaccine that has been authorized for kids ages five and older adjusted to a lower dose will be used for the study. A third shot will also be tested in the age group.
Today, we became the first and only site in the Charlotte area to offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine trial to healthy children ages six months old to under five years of age. Congrats to our Atrium Health Levine Children’s research team! https://t.co/zDOtZ7YeTt
