The pediatric meetings are also scheduled a week after FDA advisers review the need for Pfizer Inc’s (PFE.N) COVID-19 vaccine in children aged five to 11.

Pfizer on Thursday said the company and its partner BioNTech SE have asked U.S. regulators to authorize emergency use of their COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11.
