Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 Vaccine Shows 100% Effectiveness In Long Term Analysis In Adolescents


Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE (NASDAQ: BNTX) have announced topline results from a longer-term analysis of the safety and efficacy of their COVID-19 Vaccine in individuals 12 through 15 years of age. The updated findings from the Phase 3 trial show that a two-dose series of the Vaccine (30-µg per dose) was 100% effective against COVID-19, measured seven days through over four months after the second dose.

  • Data from almost 2,230 participants showed that 30 cases of COVID-19 were reported in the placebo group and 0 cases in the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine group.

  • The adverse event profile was generally consistent with other clinical safety data for the Vaccine.

  • After the second dose, no serious safety concerns were observed in individuals with at least six months of safety follow-up.

  • "These are the first and only disclosed longer-term data demonstrating the safety and efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine in individuals 12 to 15 years of age," said Ugur Sahin, CEO and Co-founder of BioNTech. 

  • The companies say that these data will form the basis for a planned supplemental marketing application to expand approval of the Vaccine for use in individuals 12 years and older. 

  • The Vaccine is currently available for individuals 12 to 15 under Emergency Use Authorization.
