The European Medicines Agency (EMA) on Thursday approved the use of the anti-Covid Moderna vaccine for children aged 6 and over, while serum was previously authorized from the age of 12 in the 27 countries of the European Union.
Nearly 6 million Covid deaths
"The EMA's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has recommended granting an extension of indication for the anti-Covid-19 vaccine Spikevax (Moderna) in order to extend its use to children aged 6 to 11 years" , the EMA said in a statement.
The pandemic has killed nearly 6 million people worldwide since the end of December 2019, according to a report established by AFP from official sources on Wednesday midday.
The WHO estimates, taking into account the excess mortality directly and indirectly linked to Covid-19, that the toll of the pandemic could be two to three times higher than that officially established.
