Pfizer and BioNTech’s Vaccine Agency Prudence

Regarding the vaccine, the managing director, like several of his deputies, has in recent days tried to temper the optimism that emerged last week when Pfizer and BioNTech announced that preliminary data from phase III trials of their vaccine showed 90 percent efficacy.

“Initially, quantities will be limited and therefore health care workers, the elderly and those at risk will be given priority and we hope this will reduce the number of deaths and enable health systems to resist,” said the Executive Director.
