China's Corona Vaccine May Be Ready For Public In November

Coronavirus vaccine by Pfizer-BioNTech could be available by end of 2020, claims top official

The companies have submitted an amended protocol for their trials to the US Food and Drug Administration.

"I don't know if they have to wait until 2021, because, as I said, our studies, we have a good chance that we will know if the product works by the end of October".

Pfizer CEO, Albert Boula, has said the drug company could release a Covid-19 vaccine before the year is out.


The vaccine being developed by Oxford and AstraZeneca is widely perceived to be one of, if not the strongest contender among the dozens of coronavirus vaccines in various stages of testing around the world.

In an interview with "Face the Nation", Bourla said it's not yet known whether Americans will be able to receive a coronavirus vaccine before 2021, as issuance of a license depends on federal regulators. Pfizer is working to diversify the sample of its Phase III trial as it increases the number of participants to 44,000 from 30,000, Bourla said.

Scientific voices point out that pausing clinical trials to review and redirect course, if need be, was in fact sound in science. Seoul has also set up a special support center to facilitate the development of vaccines by local companies.

Pfizer chose not to take US taxpayer money to help fund its coronavirus vaccine development, a move that CBS News' Margaret Brennan pointed out on Sunday is a bit of a financial risk for the pharmaceutical giant.

Bourla acknowledged that if its coronavirus vaccine fails, Pfizer will absorb the financial hit. "When you get money from someone that always comes with strings". Plus, he added, he wanted to keep Pfizer out of politics, a tall task for a pharma company on any day, but especially during this pandemic.

When this happened late last week, Poonawala tweeted, "a$3 s I'd mentioned earlier, we should not jump to conclusions until the trials are fully concluded".

He told Hemmer that in the first parts of the clinical trial, the vaccine looked promising and that it produced a "robust immune response in patients" - but that critics have said it may only be 50 percent effective if approved. A prolonged delay in the United States trial could slow access to the vaccine in the US.

"What we're going to be doing is targeting the vaccine to select groups of people who are at very high risk of a bad outcome from COVID to try to reduce their risk", he said.
