Pfizer - BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine candidate shows potentially promising results from an ongoing Phase 1/2 Trial

Thu Jul 02, 2020 12:11 am

One of many links provided below:

In an interview conducted last month, Pfizer's CEO Albert Bourla stated that if all goes well with these vaccine trials and testing, a vaccine could start to be distributed as early as October of this year.

This is coming just weeks after AstraZeneca's ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 entered phase 2/3 trials. Many analysts have claimed that the AstraZeneca/Oxford candidate is so far the leader in the race to start vaccine distribution by the end of the year if luck is on our side.

However, the main drawback of this is that AstraZeneca's CEO stated that protection from COVID-19 may last for only a year.

Yep, being from STL, where they (pfizer) are making the vaccine, there is a lot of buzz going around regarding the potential success. And while I can't elaborate due to breaking the site's rules regarding internal information, all I'm going to say is that there is even better news than what is being reported to the press
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

This is great news.
From the article

"While the manufacturer has not given a specific release date, Dormitzer assured ABC News Pfizer is "currently on track" to meet the goal of producing 100 million doses by the end of the year and another 1.2 billion doses in 2021.

"The goal that we've set is to distribute millions of vaccine doses in 2020 and executing on that, of course, means everything has to go well," he said. "We need the regulatory approval to do so. But that is our plan."


The vaccine should go to the elderly and most susceptible first and foremost. Then we can start to work towards full re openings. The bad news is that we still have 4-6 months of social distancing to get through.
Where ever you go, there you are.
