Vincenzo Mincolla, an 8 month old baby New York, is the youngest person in the world to have received both doses of the Covid vaccine. The newborn is one of 16 children who took part in the Pfizer trial for the age group from 6 months to 2 years. “We both believe it is important to end this pandemic, and the quickest and safest way is to get vaccinated to get out of it,” commented the primacy of little “Enzo” his parents, according to Syracuse.com.
Vincenzo Mincolla received his second dose of the vaccine last Wednesday as part of a clinical study conducted by Upstate Medical University, one of four hospitals in the United States that test Pfizer vaccine in children under 5. The United States is currently the only country to perform such tests.
