Moderna Says Its COVID-19 Vaccine Is, Safe and Effective, in 12- to 17-Year-Olds. On Tuesday, Moderna announced the results of their Phase 2 trial of the administration of their COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 12 to 17. .

The vaccine was found to be 93 percent effective at preventing mild cases of COVID-19 after one dose. . These mild cases only involved one symptom of COVID-19, rather than two or more. . No significant safety concerns were identified: only mild side effects after the second dose such as headache, fatigue, muscle pain, pain at the injection site and chills. Moderna plans to submit their findings and a request for authorization to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in early June. . Currently, Pfizerโ€™s COVID-19 vaccine is the only one to have gained emergency use authorization from the FDA to include 12- to 15-year-olds
