First Pfizer coronavirus vaccines expected to land on Wednesday

FDA announces deaths of two Pfizer vaccine trial participants • Vaccines expected to arrive in Israel Wednesday


Ahead of the FDA’s Thursday meeting on the Pfizer vaccine, the administration announced Tuesday that two trial participants had died after receiving it. One of the deceased individuals was immunocompromised, meaning the person’s immune defenses were low.

The information was obtained from documents released by the FDA on Tuesday.

The documents were released ahead of a meeting on Thursday of external experts who will debate whether emergency authorization for the vaccine should be granted.

The FDA also said on Tuesday that the data they receive are in line with emergency use authorization, raising hopes for authorization on Thursday.

At the same time, the FDA said that currently there is not enough research to guarantee the vaccine’s safety for immunocompromized groups, pregnant women and children.
