Pfizer final analysis shows coronavirus vaccine is 95% effective with no safety concerns
quote:

(CNN)A final analysis of the Phase 3 trial of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine shows it was 95% effective in preventing infections, even in older adults, and caused no serious safety concerns, the company said Wednesday.

The company counted 170 cases of coronavirus infection among volunteers who took part in the trial. It said 162 infections were in people who got placebo, or plain saline shots, while eight cases were in participants who got the actual vaccine. That works out to an efficacy of 95%, Pfizer said.

The data show Pfizer's initial claim of a better than 90% efficacy -- a claim that stunned and pleased health officials and vaccine developers last week -- holds up.

"Efficacy was consistent across age, race and ethnicity demographics. The observed efficacy in adults over 65 years of age was over 94%," Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech said in a joint statement


quote:

Pfizer said it will seek US Food and Drug Administration emergency use authorization "within days."

"These data also will be submitted to other regulatory agencies around the world," Pfizer said. They plan to publish the data in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, as well.

They couldn't have Moderna having a higher percentage than them

Did whatever company released the first run of the polio vaccine also say there were no health concerns?

Large company on the cusp of making billions of dollars on product says product is really good and has no negative features. More at 11.

What would they gain by lying to you? They've already been paid for the billions of dollars worth of the vaccine. I'm not sure what the endgame in lying would be.

They get to inject whatever nanotech they’ve been working on in every us citizen with no questions. Who knows what info this will give them and to what end? A lot of people are starting to question if this was the goal of releasing the virus in the first place.

You don't think they're going to sell this world-wide?

If I turn into a zombie, oh well. Maybe it’ll eventually give me the ability to see through walls?

I just want this shite to be over with.

That's a bold strategy....I mean realistically speaking the actual release of the vaccine for COVID is horrible for their stock.

They'll never get as much volume in a year as they are going to get in 2021.

don't have to. One of Biden's covid advisors believes we should ship the US supply overseas out of fairness.

You think it would help them sell it worldwide if the use in the US (which will be well in use before worldwide distribution gets any foothold) is marred by deaths and less efficacy than was initially reported?

If the government wants to gather data on a dude who has pretty much given up on his dreams and spends most of his time on Pornhub and losing money on sports gambling, that’s on them.

re: Pfizer final analysis shows coronavirus vaccine is 95% effective with no safety concerns
Obviously I'm not an anti-vaxer....but I was skeptical of this R&D effort as well so I did some research. There are some of the smartest people in the world using the most high tech processes ever used for vaccine development on this particular vaccine. The person mobilization for this R&D effort was insane....if we could do this for other industries like computer technology it would be amazing what we could develop.

Someone mentioned the 1st polio vaccine earlier.....it floors me that people don't realize the technological advances from the 1950s to today.
