Pfizer. Vaccine. LFG.

Pfizer announced today that a COVID-19 vaccine that they have been developing in collaboration with BioNTech was found in a Phase 3, late-stage study “to be more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 in participants without evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection in the first interim efficacy analysis.”

Pfizer’s CEO went on CNBC and said that over a billion doses will be available in 2021:

Unsurprisingly, stock futures (except for companies that benefit from lockdowns, like Zoom, which is down about 12% pre-market), are up big today. S&P futures are up over 4%, and Dow futures are up nearly 6%.

This is some great news that, hopefully, the world will be approaching a normal place by next summer.

  1. Governor Andrew Cuomo says he is working with other Governors to withhold a COVID-19 vaccine from New York (and other states) until his team of doctors deem it safe because he doesn’t trust the FDA or CDC, raising serious questions about how and when it will eventually become available and who will be the arbiter of it.

  2. Pfizer is a political player in global politics having
    Withheld this announcement until after the election
    They contributed $350,000.00 to the Alzheimer candidate
    as well as $150,000 to Senate Democrats and another $150,000 to Pete Butgieg …. The delayed announcement
    is undermining a president who made this fast track available to big Pharma in favor of a Candidate who doesn’t know if he is on foot or horseback and a Party hell ent on Socialism
