Company says it is pursuing authorization for 2-18 year-olds due to unmet need and lack of an authorized vaccine in the youngest age group; however, the relatively small size of the safety database, the single-arm design of the pediatric immunobridging study conducted solely in India, and lack of authorized use in adults spell trouble for the request.
