Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Delayed Until At Least Late November

The EpiVacCorona vaccine developed by the Vector centre of the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Well Being

Bourla's emphasis on having data in October "is what got many of us concerned, whether it was inadvertently playing into the political pressure or just because the incentives were aligned", Topol said.

The first patient enrolled in Pfizer's COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine clinical trial at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore received an injection in May. The vaccine must reduce the risk of infection by at least 50% in order to be considered for FDA emergency authorization.

Pfizer, which is partnering with German company BioNTech on the research, gained more than two percent in online trading ahead of the opening of United States markets.

An advanced study involving tens of thousands of volunteers that is necessary to establish safety and effectiveness of the vaccine is scheduled to start in November or December.

How will we know if the vaccine works?

"Novosibirsk's Vektor [State Virology and Biotechnology Center] has registered the second Russian coronavirus vaccine today", Putin said via televised video conference. We need to talk in terms of a vaccine; we need to vaccinate enough people - with a vaccine one can achieve immunity and herd immunity safely.

Bourla noted the Food and Drug Administration is asking for two months of data on half of the participants in a vaccine trial following the final dose of a vaccine before it would grant Emergency Use Authorization in the US.

Pfizer, which is developing the vaccine with German partner BioNTech, said that it may confirm if the vaccine is effective as soon as this month but that it also needs safety data from a 44,000-person clinical trial that will not be available until next month.

Vektor is a former Soviet bioweapons research lab and, in addition to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is one of two sites in the world that house smallpox stockpiles.

After the FDA announced the two-month requirement on October 6, which was approved by the White House but undercut the likelihood of a vaccine before voters go to polls on November 3., Trump called the move a 'political hit job'. Who Will be The First to be Cured of Coronavirus in India? At least four vaccines are far along including from China National Biotec Group (CNBG), CanSino Biologics and Sinovac. Russian Federation has also given the vaccine to at least hundreds of "high-risk" members of the general population. However, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has the authority to override the FDA's recommendation.

That time line makes it unlikely a vaccine will be available before the US election as President Donald Trump has promised.
