Pfizer announced Monday that its COVID-19 vaccine candidate has been 90% effective.
In a press release, the company said that in Phase 3 trials, the vaccine has proven to promote a vaccine efficacy rate above 90% following the two-shot regimen.
When do you think a COVID-19 vaccine will become available? Voting has closed for this poll — here are the results:
- 80% said next year
- 20% said before the end of the year
Watch for another poll this Tuesday afternoon that we will follow and review starting at News5 at 4 p.m.
The Associated Press said that while Pfizer's announcement means the company is on track to file an application for emergency use authorization later this month, it does not mean a vaccine is "imminent" and more studies are needed.
