Covid-19 live updates: Seattle takes crown of most-vaccinated major U.S. city

Executives from U.S. pharmaceutical firms Pfizer and Moderna have predicted that data showing whether their coronavirus vaccines are effective in younger children will be available in the fall. Many families are eagerly awaiting a vaccine authorization for their kids. But hesitancy could be worse among families deciding on vaccines for young children, because young children are at lower risk of severe covid-19 than older adults and even adolescents

The advisory panel is not voting Thursday on whether to authorize a specific product but is advising the FDA on the level of evidence needed for children under 12. Advisers will also discuss whether a different level of evidence may be needed for different age groups.

Here are some significant developments:

  • The Biden administration is buying 500 million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine to donate to the world, as the United States dramatically increases its efforts to help vaccinate more of the global population.
  • Seattle has fully vaccinated 70 percent of its residents above age 12 against the coronavirus, making it the most inoculated major city in the United States.
  • Britain and the United States will work to resume travel between the countries “as soon as possible,” the British prime minister’s office said, ahead of a meeting between President Biden and Boris Johnson.
  • Despite declines in deaths, hospitalization and infections in Europe, vaccination coverage is not enough to protect the region from a coronavirus resurgence, the World Health Organization warned Thursday.
  • Health authorities in Russia reported more than 11,699 new coronavirus cases Thursday, logging the highest number of daily infections in more than three months; officials there continue to play down the pandemic’s severity.
  • The United States reported a seven-day rolling average of 16,546 new infections Wednesday, roughly the same as the previous week. The number of reported tests fell about 15 percent.
