Can the news get any better about the COVID-19 vaccines? Right now, there are 2 vaccines, both from the U.S. that could get the world back on track. The Pfizer vaccine is 95% effective, according to experts!
Even better, there are apparently no safety concerns.
The results from the final efficacy analysis come after the pharmaceutical company announced its Phase 3 trials preliminary results last week.
The Phase 3 study involved over 43,000 volunteers who were given two doses, 21 days apart. Half of those received a placebo while the other half were given the vaccine.
The results: 94% of seniors over the age of 65 appeared to be protected.
The company also said that, in its trial, there were 170 coronavirus cases. Of those people, 162 were in the placebo group. Only 8 were in the group involving the experimental vaccine.
Additionally, there were 10 people who developed severe COVID-19, but only one of those had received the vaccine.
