Frankfurt, Germany:

Pfizer / BioNTech said on Friday it had asked European regulators to authorize their Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 12 to 15, following a similar move in the United States earlier this month.

The companies have filed a request with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to expand the current emergency approval for their jab to include “teens 12 to 15 years of age,” they said in a statement.

BioNTech CEO Ugur Sahin said Thursday that the jab may be available for those age groups from June.
