Md. man believes he was first person to be successfully vaccinated against COVID-19

A Maryland man has claimed he was the first to be successfully vaccinated against the coronavirus. This came after he participated in a clinical trial, which is making great strides in producing antibodies.

David Rach was the first person to be injected in a University of Maryland trial in May. Rach has said he has seen a slight reaction to the second dose, which convinced him that he has been vaccinated against the virus.

Rach is due to be tested in October to see if he has any immunity to the virus. If the trial proves to be successful, U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer confirmed it will produce 100 million doses before the end of the year and more than a billion in 2021.

Meanwhile, a German biotech company partnering with Pfizer is confident about having a coronavirus vaccine ready by the end of this year. BioNTech CEO Dr. Ugur Sahin recently announced the vaccine will be ready for regulatory approval by the end of 2020.
 He added that several hundred million doses could be ready before then. Phase three of clinical trials for the vaccine are set for late July.
