The Pfizer Vaccine has been declared effective against the new strains of the virus.
There are typically two new strains of coronavirus, Covid Variants as they are called, and they are understood to be British and South African in origin.
In information released by BioNTech laboratories themselves, they claim that the vaccine appears effective against “key mutations” of the British and South African strains.
Antibodies from people who have been inoculated with the Pfizer vaccine effectively neutralize the SARS-COV-2 using a key mutation found in two transmissible strains from the UK and South Afrika.
BioNTech stress this study is in the early stages and of course, it will continue, but the signs are promising, and they will publish details of other important research as soon as possible.
In the meantime, the biggest vaccination programme the world has ever seen carries on.
