FDA issues emergency use authorization for Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized the first Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use in the United States.

Millions of doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, which has been found to be 95% effective, will be soon shipped around the country so vaccinations can begin within days.

At Vidal Medical Concierge, located in Juno Beach, Florida and headed by Dr. Yael Vidal, we monitor closely the availability of the new Covid-19 vaccine to our patients. As a medical concierge physician for Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens, we strive to serve our patients with the greatest possible level of care and professionalism.

First ‘milestone’ Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech offers 90% protection

The first effective coronavirus vaccine can prevent more than 90% of people from getting Covid-19, a preliminary analysis shows.

The developers – Pfizer and BioNTech – described it as a “great day for science and humanity”.

Their vaccine has been tested on 43,500 people in six countries, and no safety concerns have been raised.

The companies plan to apply soon for emergency approval to use the vaccine.

Vidal Medical Concierge continues to update its patients with regard to such important developments. As a Concierge Physician for Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens as well other nearby regions, Yael Vidal MD consults her patients with regard to their ongoing medical concerns and also regarding CoronaVirus and Covid-19 related concerns.

FDA gives emergency-use approval to Eli Lilly COVID-19 Drug; Supplies Will Be Limited

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the thumbs-up to a drug designed to prevent people with mild to moderate COVID-19 from getting sicker.

The drug, a monoclonal antibody, will be available to people 65 or older or those with underlying health conditions. Supplies will be short, and distributing the medicine fairly will be a challenge.

The FDA is allowing the drug on the market under its emergency-use provision, which requires a lower standard of evidence than outright approval.

This antibody is made by Eli Lilly. President Trump got a similar medication made by Regeneron — but that product is still under review at the FDA.

At Vidal Medical Concierge, located in Juno Beach and serving Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, and the nearby areas, we continue to monitor the latest developments in treatments for COVID-19, and continue to advise the patients of Dr. Yael Vidal with regard to relevant new treatments.

FDA approves Gilead’s Remdesivir as coronavirus treatment

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Gilead’s antiviral drug Remdesivir as a treatment for the coronavirus.

In May 2020, the FDA granted the drug an emergency use authorization, allowing hospitals and doctors to use it on patients hospitalized with the disease even though the medication had not been formally approved by the agency.

The intravenous drug has helped shorten the recovery time of some hospitalized Covid-19 patients. It was one of the drugs used to treat President Donald Trump, who tested positive for the virus in October 2020.

Remdesivir will be used for Covid-19 patients at least 12 years old and requiring hospitalization, Gilead said. Remdesivir is now the first and only fully approved treatment in the U.S. for Covid-19.

At Vidal Medical Concierge, we continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation as well as any new treatments or remedies for it.
