Two #Coronavirus vaccines with ~95% efficacy; Pfizer’s is even efficacious in >65 yo. How good is this? MMR vaccine is 97% and 88% effective against measles and mumps, respectively. HepB vaccine is ~95% effective (age-dependent). Not bad if data pans out. nytimes.com/2020/11/18/hea…

Pfizer updates efficacy of its #covid19 vaccine from 92% to 95%. 162 cases total , 8 cases in vaccine arm, 1 severe. EUA application in next days. I trust the scientists at FDA but would be nice to see data published in a peer reviewed journal or preprint nytimes.com/2020/11/18/hea…

Good, but still much to find out. As usual, @SaadOmer3 puts it nicely: "“These are not normal times, this is a pandemic, and major policy is being made... It’s always better to make policy on scientific data, not a press release.” nytimes.com/2020/11/18/hea…

"Americans will receive the vaccine for free" is a huge progress & welcome. Everyone in ALL countries should get Covid-19 vaccines for free - that is the next ask! nytimes.com/2020/11/18/hea…

New vaccine data almost too good to believe - but maybe 2020 deserves a little good news to cancel out the first 10 months? Also - does anyone know the interval needed between the two vaccine doses? nytimes.com/2020/11/18/hea…
