According to a new report from CNN, Pfizer — a pharmaceutical company behind one of the three COVID-19 vaccines approved in the U.S. — plans to ask in September for permission to make its vaccine available to those between the ages of 2 and 11. The news reportedly came via an earnings call the company held on Tuesday.

The company has already asked the FDA for the emergency use authorization it needs to provide the vaccine to those between the ages of 12 and 15. “The FDA is poised to authorize Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine in that age group by early next week,” CNN wrote, citing a “federal government official” who communicated that news to the outlet on Monday.
