The COVID-19 vaccine is now among the most discussed topics in the United States, and for a good reason, since people want to know a lot more about it. While COVID-19 is a relatively new infection, we’re still trying to figure out how it affects our immune system.
But even though there’s probably a lot more to discover about this virus, we know for sure that the vaccine is the most important tool in keeping COVID-19 at bay and preventing transmission. All three vaccines that are currently used in the United States, such as Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson, have been very effective in clinical trials.
Since there’s not enough evidence on how the vaccines affect children and adolescents, Pfizer allows people over 16 to get vaccinated, while Moderna and Johnson & Johnson only allow people over 18 or older.
However, a new study has shown that Pfizer is 100 percent effective for adolescents aged between 12 and 15. Read on to find out more about Pfizer’s vaccine and how long it offers protection against COVID-19!
