Pfizer Will Know Results Soon
Big Pharma giant Pfizer announced today it will have results next month of an extensive clinical trial for its vaccine for the Chinese coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19 to be political correct. This comes on the heels of the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta warning states yesterday to be ready to administer mass vaccinations in November.
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla confirmed Thursday morning that results from its large-scale, late-stage trial of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine candidate BNT162b2 should be available next month, reported Bloomberg.
If positive, it will immediately file for emergency use authorization with the FDA, which FDA chief Dr. Stephen Hahn has suggested would be immediately approved. As of Wednesday, 23K people have been enrolled in the 30K-subject trial, wrote Zero Hedge.
The Trump administration launched a massive effort to acquire an effective vaccine earlier in the year, with hope the medication could be ready by the election. It looks like they may meet that goal.
