Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer is developing four coronavirus vaccines — but it may have struck gold on the first try
On July 1, the company released the preliminary results for its first coronavirus vaccine trial, and based on the available data, Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine appears to have triggered a strong immune response in study participants.
“Our first vaccine candidate is eliciting antibody levels to neutralize the virus that is equivalent to or better than what you see in people who have had COVID-19,” Phil Dormitzer, a Pfizer vaccine developer, told ABC News.
This news means Pfizer and its partner, German company BioNTech, are still on track to produce 100 million doses of a coronavirus vaccine in 2020, according to Dormitzer.
“The goal that we’ve set is to distribute millions of vaccine doses in 2020 and executing on that, of course, means everything has to go well,” he said. “We need the regulatory approval to do so. But that is our plan.”
