Encouraging News from Dr. Parker
I write to you with encouraging news regarding new developments in the search for an effective vaccine against COVID-19. As you may have read in our latest biweekly newsletter, Pfizer announced their new vaccine demonstrates 95% effectiveness in the prevention of COVID and they are applying this week for emergency use authorization (EUA) to the FDA. A competitor, Moderna, announced almost identical findings for their vaccine and is also ready to apply for an EUA. Finally, this week a third company, AstraZeneca, announced results of trials on their vaccine that uses DNA rather than RNA technology, indicating up to 90% efficacy with one of the dosing regimens studied.
