A Happy Tear Shed For Virus Efficacy

Pfizer may be the first drugmaker to file for US regulatory authorization for its Covid-19 vaccine, which it says is 95% effective with no serious side effects. This comes right on the heels of news out of Moderna, which says its vaccine also stands at over 94%.
