CEO says Pfizer can't seek virus vaccine OK before mid-November

The American “Pfizer” expects to launch its vaccine against Corona after

Here's an update on the quest for a magic bullet against the coronavirus that has already killed more than a million people worldwide.

A COVID-19 vaccine candidate, developed by the American drugmaker Pfizer and the German biotech firm BioNTech SE, may be available for emergency use soon.

"We're deeply grateful to all of the agencies and partners involved in this collaborative effort to develop a comprehensive COVID-19 vaccination plan", said Burgum.

Inactivated "classic" vaccines use a virus germ that has been killed while others use a weakened or "attenuated" strain that is virulent enough to provoke antibodies but not to cause disease.

Shah said that's just one of the distribution challenges, but nevertheless, they are working out scenarios based on the vaccines now in late-stage trials.

"First, the vaccine must be proven effective, meaning it can help prevent COVID-19 disease in at least a majority of vaccinated patients". If a vaccine were to be approved by the end of the year, that would mark about 9 months since the process began, a sharp contrast to the average 11 years of development for typical vaccines.

Another U.S. firm Moderna Inc. has also reportedly said it will not be ready to seek emergency use authorization from the FDA before November 25 at the earliest.

Similar studies in recent weeks have reported on one of the Russian vaccines, along with those from the University of Oxford, Chinese company CanSino, and Moderna. AstraZeneca's US trial has been on hold since September, while another USA trial of a candidate from Johnson & Johnson was paused earlier this week.

"I've said before, we are operating at the speed of science".

Companies backed by their governments in China, Russia and the U.S. are racing to be the first across the finish line.

But there were few takers outside of Russian Federation, and experts dismissed the announcement as premature.

Pfizer is one among several companies in the midst of final-stage clinical trials for potential coronavirus vaccines in the country.

Donald Trump has promised a vaccine before the 3 November election, but it is unlikely he will be able to deliver.

Maine's system for distributing an eventual COVID-19 vaccine will prioritize racial equity and protecting health care workers and the elderly, according to a plan the state submitted to the federal government on Friday.

Once all these steps have been completed, we will proceed to request your approval: "Assuming positive data, Pfizer will request the use of emergency authorization in the USA shortly after the safety milestone is achieved in the third week of november".

"Before approval, all vaccines in the European Union (EU) are evaluated against the same high standards as any other medicine", the EMA said in a statement.
