Germany's Health Minister Jens Spahn said his country expects to vaccinate the population aged 12 to 18 by the end of the summer vacations. Some 10 million doses would be needed to complete immunization in this age group.
In this European country, sub-national governments will start designing vaccination campaigns that could even include the possibility of immunizing students in their high schools.
BioNTech and Pfizer are currently testing their COVID-19 vaccine in children between six months and eleven years of age. They expect to have reliable results by September.
