New FDA Bad Ad Quiz + Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Data for Young Children – Xtalks Life Science Podcast Ep. 30

New FDA Bad Ad Quiz + Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Data for Young Children – Xtalks Life Science Podcast Ep. 30

In this episode, Ayesha talks about the FDA’s new interactive quiz as part of its Bad Ad outreach program that targets misleading pharmaceutical promotions. Although the Bad Ad program is primarily directed towards healthcare providers, the general public can also anonymously report dubious ads to the FDA’s Office of Prescription Drug Promotion (OPDP), which runs the program. The new quiz is likely a part of more materials to come to help beef up the Bad Ad program, which has been receiving an increasing number of pharma ad complaints over the last several years.

The episode also features a discussion about Pfizer and BioNTech’s announcement of the first trial results for their COVID-19 vaccine in young children five to 11 years of age. The data shows that the vaccine is safe, well-tolerated and elicits robust immune responses in this age group. Despite the promising data, some parents may still be hesitant to vaccinate their young children according to a Kaiser Family Foundation survey. Hear about some of the factors that are influencing vaccine hesitancy among parents.
