J&J plans to test Covid vaccine on youngsters soon

Oct 31, 2020 12:56 IST

Johnson & Johnson plans to start testing its experimental Covid-19 vaccine on younger people aged between 12 and 18 as soon as possible, news agency Reuters has reported. Depending on safety and other factors, the company plans to test on even younger children afterwards. J&J started testing the vaccine on adults in a 60,000-volunteer Phase III study in late September. Rival drugmaker Pfizer has already begun testing its Covid-19 vaccine on children as young as 12.
