Copenhagen: Denmark will offer Covid-19 vaccines for children aged 12-15 after the adult population has been inoculated to boost its overall immunity.

Initially, Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine will be made available for 12-15 year-olds as it is the only vaccine approved by the EU’s drug regulator for use in adolescents, the Danish Health Authority said in a statement.

The EU regulator expects to announce a decision on the use of Moderna’s shot in adolescents sometime next month.

“An expansion of the target group to the 12-15-year-olds is necessary to ensure even greater immunity in the population, and thus ensure control of the epidemic in Denmark,” the head of the Danish Health Authority, Soren Brostrom, said.
