- Pfizer is expanding its massive coronavirus vaccine clinical trial, opening the study to include children as young as 12.
- The company is poised to become the first major drugmaker to start testing a COVID-19 shot in kids in a large-scale study.
- The New York pharma giant said it got permission to boost the study’s overall size to as many as 48,400 volunteers.
- Pfizer broadened the study last month to include 16- and 17-year-olds as well as people with HIV, hepatitis B, or hepatitis C.

- Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has said he expects data from this study before the end of October.

Baz and Traub both had master’s degrees in photography from the Illinois Institute of Technology, but their road trip preceded the work that
