Are we going to have a Coronavirus vaccince soon?

Pharmaceutical company Pfizer just announced that its coronavirus vaccine is 95 percent effective, with no serious side effects — an improvement over their already promising preliminary results released earlier this month.

Pfizer claims that the vaccine was 94 percent effective in older adults, the demographic that’s been hardest hit by COVID-19.

The news comes after Pfizer had previously announced that its vaccine was 90.5 percent effective according to preliminary test results released on November 9. A separate pharmaceutical company, Moderna, recently said that its own coronavirus vaccine was 94.5 percent effective — meaning the two vaccines appear to be nearly identical in their efficacy.
Pfizer, with 3.8 percent of participants reporting fatigue after the second dose and two percent reporting a headache.

Pfizer, alongside German partner BioNTech, will now apply for emergency authorization “within days” from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The company said if FDA authorization comes through in time, 50 million doses could be made available before the end of the year. 1.3 billion by the end of 2021.

“The study results mark an important step in this historic eight-month journey to bring forward a vaccine capable of helping to end this devastating pandemic,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said in a statement.

The US will only get around 12.5 million doses from the company’s earliest supplies by the end of this year.

I'm hearing the first doses will be out around mid December.
Those will go to healthcare workers, First Responders, and seniors.
I'm guessing the military will be a priority as well.
The bulk of the population should be able to get vaccinated by early to mid summer.
Most of the news I've heard has been about Pfizer and Moderna, but I think there's another one that's about ready too.
So far it sounds like there's been minimal side effects, and their efficacy rate is very high. That's good.
I still haven't heard how long they're good for.
As this virus mutates, we may have to get boosters periodically.

Not sure what your enduring there. 99% of people here want Cuomo and di Blasio removed. We want an end to no bail and their unconstitutional sanctuary. We do not want illegal criminals here or monsters who want barbaric unconstitutional Sharia law. We want our police funded and to be safe.
We have immigrant neibighors who are great people and agree with us. Most immigrants I know tell me our problem is foolish, deluded American's who have no clue how blessed they are to be born here.
Cuomo, di Blascio, every governor, mayor promoting policies that jeopardize citizen police life's must be removed and convicted of sedition.

Allowing those who want unconstitutional Sharia law to attempt to inflict their barbaric ways on American citizen is criminal and di Blascio instructs police to stand down in many areas. He uses our raised property taxes to fund them and his wife stole millions from us. They both release criminals with no bail.

Seniors should be a priority too.
Fascist, murder Cuomo wants to block vaccines in New York. This has no scientific basis and is purely political. He deserves to get Coronavirus and drop dead. He sent infected seniors to nursing homes and killed seniors. I know people who lost parents. Heartbreaking. Despite that President Trump sent him a hospital ship with staff and turned the Javits center into hospital. His polices are jeopardizing citizen and police life’s. His no bail policy releases violate criminals. Cuomo, should be removed and convicted of sedition.
He also registered illegals which is treason.
