Iris Gorfinkel, M.D., who is a general practitioner, medical researcher, and founder of PrimeHealth Clinical Research, said she is excited about the numbers. But she is also cautious. “We want to see the actual numbers, we want to see the real data on this. Right now, they have not reached the statistical significance needed for that vaccine,” Gorfinkel told Bored Panda. “Also, they have not shared and been completely transparent so far with what the numbers are on side effects.”
Another thing the doctor pointed out is that we still do not know how long the vaccine lasts. “That’s a major issue with not just this product, but with all products, especially if it’s being pushed through fast.” Furthermore, what about the storage facility that the vaccine requires? Gorfinkel said almost no clinics have that. “We don’t have the storage facilities to keep this vaccine at minus 70 degrees. It may work in a research setting. But I’m a vaccine researcher, and I don’t even have that $15,000 refrigeration system.”
