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.
