  • 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. 
  • While early clinical results were promising, it remains to be seen if Pfizer’s vaccine — or any other experimental shot — can prevent COVID-19.
  • Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has said he expects data from this study before the end of October.

This Black-owned business is bringing health care to the barber chair

The Black-owned Baltimore barbershop now requires infrared temperature checks and masks.

The barbershop also requires clients to answer a coronavirus questionnaire found on a health care kiosk.

“It kind of gives us a baseline idea of the individual and possibly where they’ve been and who they’ve come in contact with,” Kennard Perry, a senior partner and barber at the Nile Style Barbershop, told CNN.

The results of the survey and the infrared temperature check determine whether clients get haircuts or not.

And if those clients do not end up in the barber chair, they will not leave empty-handed. Nile Style makes sure that the client is armed with a list of health care providers who can determine if that person needs a coronavirus test.

“We have to take care of one another,” said Perry.

Under criticism from business leaders, Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged private employers Tuesday to begin bringing their workforces back to Manhattan offices.

De Blasio said the city is working on a plan to require its own hundreds of thousands of employees to return to work in person, though it will be phased in gradually to make sure the coronavirus stays under control.


Under the state’s reopening plan, offices have been allowed to operate at 50 percent of their legal capacity since June. Yet the vast majority of office workers have stayed away: A survey by business groups found that only 8 percent had returned by mid-August, and just over a quarter expected to be back by the beginning of the year.

“It’s time to start
