Encouraging news on Monday about a vaccine against the coronavirus. Drug maker AstraZeneca reported that its vaccine was found to be between 62% and 90% effective in an overseas study.
« We are in a crisis and people are stepping on top of scientists and volunteers, » said Dr. . Larry Bush.
The new data on the later studies in England and Brazil now show that they are very effective.
« In the UK they give two full doses, » Bush said. « In other parts, they gave half and full doses a month later. Our process here in the U. . S.. . is two full doses. We don’t have this data yet, but we do know that over 99% of people produce antibodies from the two full doses. «
In addition, the AstraZeneca vaccine is not only cheaper to produce, but also requires normal refrigeration, unlike Pfizer’s vaccine, which has to be stored at minus 90 degrees.
Barry Synder is a Palm Beach County resident who was one of the first to volunteer for the two vaccine injections –
« I think we got the vaccine. I dont know. As you know, this is a blind study and I don’t know when we’re going to find out, but I haven’t changed my behavior at all. We canceled Thanksgiving, we canceled golf trips, « said Synder.
The development now brings three drug companies with positive vaccine studies and increases excitement that multiple vaccines may be available in the first few months of 2021.
