Covid-19 roundup: Fau­ci says first graders could have ac­cess to vac­cine by Sep­tem­ber — re­port; EMA be­gins rolling re­view of Cure­Vac vac­cine

NI­AID di­rec­tor An­tho­ny Fau­ci says kids as young as first grade could be el­i­gi­ble for Covid-19 vac­cines by the time school starts in Sep­tem­ber, per Prop­ub­li­ca. 

Fau­ci told Prop­ub­li­ca that age de-es­ca­la­tion tri­als are un­der­way to prove vac­cines are safe and ef­fec­tive in chil­dren. “I would think by the time we get to school open­ing, we like­ly will be able to get peo­ple who come in­to the first grade,” he said.
