Pfizer's Corona Vaccine had 'hangover' effect, headache and fever too

Pfizer's Corona Vaccine had 'hangover' effect, headache and fever too

In addition to the improvised packaging, Pfizer plans to track the vaccine's temperature in transit.

"If there's going to be any real challenge, to be honest with you, it's going to be convincing folks to get the vaccine", said Patrick Peer, who runs the Good Neighbor Community Health Center in Columbus, Nebraska. The primary endpoint is the prevention of symptomatic COVID-19 disease. Only half of the people were vaccinated in the trial. Now, as Beijing develops a vaccine, the need for transparency is proving essential to win back trust. This leaves us well short of vaccinating enough people. Almost 7 billion people will be looking to get the vaccine, many of whom live in remote areas where it might be hard to receive more than one dose. Most of the vaccines will have prescribed storage temperatures, thawing protocols, expiry dates, etc.

As of early July, there were roughly 160 vaccine projects under way worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

"It's understandable that there are these local adverse effects because this is a great vaccine, but we're still looking at ways of lowering that because we prefer a vaccine that gives no people a sore arm", he said.

While further drops of data look likely in the coming weeks, not just from Pfizer and AstraZeneca, but also rival firm Moderna, experts have cautioned that there is unlikely to be one victor from the vaccine race.

James Bailey from Waitrose says: "Each year festive adverts come and go - and some are remembered more vividly than others". Both adverts were directed by acclaimed British director Oscar Hudson .

Other companies in the United States and Europe producing a vaccine include Novavax, which plans to start clinical trials in the US and Mexico by the end of November; Johnson & Johnson, which recently resumed testing its vaccine candidate after a brief pause; and AstraZeneca, which expects to have clinical trial data by the end of the year.

With vaccine nationalism set to rise, it's all the more important for Chinese companies to publish all their data and have it subjected to peer review, said Nicholas Thomas, associate professor in public health at the City University of Hong Kong.

Vaccines would be manufactured and then transported to states, which will then pass the vaccine on to providers, such as hospitals. Its drug regulator accepted an application from domestic drugmaker Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group Co.to conduct a bridge trial that would pave the way for the Pfizer vaccine to be approved in China. Both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines have shown that they produce a T cell response. However, the shippers themselves present additional problems for distribution, Tan said. Delivery of the vaccine will begin in January 2021 and continue throughout the year, it said.

"All of our pharmacies are equipped with refrigerators and freezers that would allow us to store the vast majority of the vaccines right there", CVS Health's lead pharmacist and senior vice president, Chris Cox, told ABC News. Looking at the condition of Corona, AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria has said that Indians can have immunity potential before the Corona vaccine arrives in the country. "One of the primary principles will be equitable distribution, even when that means you need to take extraordinary measures for logistics, transportation, and handling".

Overall, experts said that Pfizer's announcement is a significant step forward. "I'm optimistic that we have a vaccine that's safe and effective", said Tan. "And I'm glad that what we're dealing with now is the problem of how to get it to the public".
