3. Advisory Panel on COVID-19 Vaccines convenes meeting to conduct continuous benefit-risk analysis of authorised COVID-19 vaccines

​​Having reviewed the relevant efficacy and safety data published, the Advisory Panel on COVID-19 Vaccines (Advisory Panel) suggested allowing children aged 5 to 11 to receive a fractional dose (i.e. one-third of a dose) of the Comirnaty vaccine for adults for "off-label use" and to make reference to the recommendations of relevant scientific committees for implementing the vaccination programme.

In addition, after reviewing all the latest clinical and safety data related to the Comirnaty and Sinovac vaccines, the Advisory Panel still considered that the benefits of the two vaccines outweighed the risks, and that there was no need to recommend changes regarding the use of the two vaccines.
