Pfizer and Moderna vaccines
Pfizer said a few days ago that your COVID-19 vaccine is 95% effective.
“The study results mark an important step in this historic eight-month journey to present a vaccine capable of helping end this devastating pandemic,” said Albert Bourla, CEO of the company.
Modern, meanwhile, assured that his antidote also has an effectiveness of 95% in the last phase of tests, which had about 30,000 participants.
“This positive interim analysis of our study has given us the first clinical validation that our treatment can prevent COVID-19, including the most severe phase of the disease,” said Stéphane Bancel, CEO of the company.
