Besides that, the vaccine has also shown progressive results in a small trial. It triggers the immune system of children in the 6-17 age group. Therefore, this vaccine is suitable for children and young teens. Moreover, the China-based pharmaceutical company has also stated; that this one-dose vaccine helps in developing anti-bodies against COVID-19.

The Trial Data

Researchers at the CanSino Biologics decided to lower the dosage of the vaccine as several volunteers developed level 2 severity fever. However, the lower dose vaccine triggered the antibody levels in children than the amount permitted for adults in China. The mid-trials data suggests that providing a lower dose Covid vaccine to children; is quite safer than high doses. Although the trials featured only 150 children; it is quite early to come up to any conclusion. It was also noted in the trials that children who were given lower dosage; developed more antibodies than adults inoculated with the booster shot. The booster shot was given within 56 days; after the completion of the second dose.

Limitations of the CanSino Biologics COVID-19 Vaccine

Although lower dosage has given promising results; CanSino Biologics did not mention to what level will the vaccine provide protection to the kids. Henceforth, this is the reason why the vaccine has not yet gotten a green light for children. So far, only two COVID-19 vaccines are approved in China; Sinovac, and Sinopharm. Moreover, children in China are also eligible for vaccination with these vaccines.
