Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine Prevents 90% of Infections in Study
- Preliminary results could pave way for vaccine by year-end
- Pfizer, BioNTech expect to get two-month safety data next week
The Covid-19 vaccine being developed by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE prevented more than 90% of infections in a study of tens of thousands of volunteers, the most encouraging scientific advance so far in the battle against the coronavirus.
Eight months into the worst pandemic in a century, the preliminary results pave the way for the companies to seek an emergency-use authorization from regulators if further research shows the shot is also safe.
Suggested Reading by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times:
We are thankful to the scientists that have contributed to this discovery now and in previous generations, Pfizer company and others involved in this progress and last but not the least, volunteers who tried the vaccine for the benefit of humanity.
