Before I get busy tonight, let me share that Pfizer vaccines against coronavirus are 95% effective. It was broadcasted from the local TV news. I assumed that after clinical trials of these vaccines, it will attain 100%. The bright side is it will be available if being approved by WHO. What's the side of your opinion about it?

My side? Phase 3 testing is not completed, there are serious side effects, the vaccine must be kept ALL THE TIME at a temperature of -80ยบ (BELOW 80) degrees Celsius!!! Wait and see.

It is really complicated to come up with the real effectiveness of this vaccine. I hope they can come out with the solutions soon.

@Shavkat The keyword is always "soon", because doing something in a rush is never good.

@LadyDuck I agree. It needs to do them carefully and precisely.

If Pfizer say that their vaccine is 95% effective, that is the conclusion they have come to after conducting the necessary clinical trials. It is very unlikely to increase or decrease in effectiveness after the roll-out of the vaccine because the trials were conducted properly and the statistics are robust. The percentage effectiveness could certainly vary by a few fractions of a percent as more people receive the vaccine and more data is available but you can be certain that there will always be about 5% of cases in which the vaccine is not effective. Other vaccines (and I believe that there are about 40 in the various stages of testing and production) may be more or less effective and may, indeed, be effective for some of the 5% (approximately) for which the Pfizer vaccine is not.

I am hoping that it will hit a discrepancy of 5% of this company. I heard that they are still in the process of clinical trials of these vaccines. I think they are still waiting for the WHO if it is possible to be administered soon.

@owlwings There are 54 vaccines in stage of testing and at least 87 under active investigation in animals. Pfizer is pushing to obtain the authorization and, may be, the FDA is going to authorize soon (to be the first), that does not means it will be safe.

We will wait if vaccine is already proven effective. There might be some side effects on it for some cases. Or try other vaccines that already been studied and approved. Right now, we just have to wait for other vaccines, that may release soon.

It seems it will not be available at the end of this year. Perhaps they will be widely ready next year.

@Shavkat Possible by the next year, I guess. I heard some rumors about in Facebook, it says that vaccine will be embedded with micro chip. It advises not to inject. Im not sure its true and there is also a footage in youtube but unfortunately it removes the video.

Moderna's claim is 94.5, Pfizer claim is 95% when will they reach 100%. Dengvaxia vaccine is said to be effective but then recalled suddenly because of the adverse effect. And to think that Dengvaxia was released years after Dengue manifested into new blown deadly disease. I think it will still take time

Always think of the side effect. Some people who tried some kind of vaccines are now experiencing the side effect.

It will still take some time before we get a vaccine available for everyone.

@Shavkat true. We should all act as if there is still no vaccine yet.

News like this gives a feeling of relief. It's stressful to see my newsfeed with the increasing numbers of positive so at least this is a good news for everyone. I hope they can come up with an effective vaccine for everyone.

It is effective on the virus which it is targeted. However, it could not do anything about mutated virus.
