Possible first case of successful vaccination against the COVID-19

Possible premier cas réussi de vaccination contre la COVID-19

A man from Maryland, in the United States, believed to be the first to have been vaccinated successfully against the COVID-19.

David Rach, a student in immunology, received the vaccine in the framework of a study piloted at the University of Maryland by Pfizer and BioNTech, reports the New York Post.

The initial findings show that the vaccine appears to have stimulated the growth of antibodies at a rate that is equal to or greater than those of infected persons.

“There’s a certain relief to know that there are results, that the vaccine produces antibodies,” said the student in an interview.

If David Rach can be certain of receiving the vaccine true or a simple saline solution placebo, he is convinced that he is one of the few people in the world are vaccinated against the COVID-19. His reasoning is built around the fact that there has been a slight reaction after his second dose.

It must undergo testing in October in order to confirm if he is actually immune to the coronavirus.

If the tests are successful, the pharmaceutical giant Pzifer account to deliver more than 100 million doses before the end of the year and over a billion next year.
