WASHINGTON US biotech firm Moderna said Monday it was seeking conditional approval for use of its COVID-19 vaccine on teens in Europe and Canada, in what will assuredly be a boost for inoculation campaigns.

“We are encouraged that the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was highly effective at preventing COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 infection in adolescents,” Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said in a statement, adding that the firm also planned to file for emergency approval with the US Food and Drug Administration.
