Pfizer and BioNTech Confirm HighEfficacy and No Serious Safety Concerns Through Up to Six Months Following Second Dose in Updated Topline Analysis of Landmark COVID-19 Vaccine Study

• Analysis of 927 confirmed symptomatic cases of COVID-19 demonstrates BNT162b2 is highly effective with 91.3% vaccine efficacy observed against COVID-19, measured seven days through up to six months after the second dose• Vaccine was 100% effective in preventing severe disease as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and 95.3% effective in preventing severe disease as defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
• Vaccine was 100% effective in preventing COVID-19 cases in South Africa, where the B.1.351 lineage is prevalent
• Vaccine safety now evaluated in more than 44,000 participants 16 years of age and older, with more than 12,000 vaccinated participants having at least six months follow-up after their second dose
• The companies plan to share these results with worldwide regulatory agencies soon

New York and Mainz, Germany, April 1, 2021 — Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE
(Nasdaq: BNTX) today announced updated topline results from analysis of 927 confirmed
symptomatic cases of COVID-19 observed in their pivotal Phase 3 study through March 13, 2021,
showing the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, BNT162b2, was 91.3% effective against COVID-19,
measured seven days through up to six months after the second dose. The vaccine was 100%
effective against severe disease as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), and 95.3% effective against severe COVID-19 as defined by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA). Safety data from the Phase 3 study has also been collected from more than
12,000 vaccinated participants who have a follow-up time of at least six months after the second dose,
demonstrating a favorable safety and tolerability profile.
“These data confirm the favorable efficacy and safety profile of our vaccine and position us to submit a
Biologics License Application to the U.S. FDA,” said Albert Bourla, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, Pfizer. “The high vaccine efficacy observed through up to six months following a second dose
and against the variant prevalent in South Africa provides further confidence in our vaccine’s overall
effectiveness.”
“It is an important step to further confirm the strong efficacy and good safety data we have seen so far,
especially in a longer-term follow-up,” said Ugur Sahin, CEO and Co-founder of BioNTech. “These
data also provide the first clinical results that a vaccine can effectively protect against currently
circulating variants, a critical factor to reach herd immunity and end this pandemic for the global
population.”
About the Analysis
The updated analysis of the Phase 3 clinical trial was conducted in accordance with guidance from the
FDA for all companies investigating COVID-19 vaccines to review safety and efficacy at key
milestones.
Results from this analysis of 46,307 trial participants build upon and confirm previously released data
and demonstrate strong protection against COVID-19 through six months post-second dose. From the
927 confirmed symptomatic cases of COVID-19 in the trial, 850 cases of COVID-19 were in the
placebo group and 77 cases were in the BNT162b2 group, corresponding to vaccine efficacy of 91.3%
(95% confidence interval [CI, 89.0, 93.2]).
Thirty-two cases of severe disease, as defined by the CDC, were observed in the placebo group
versus none in the BNT162b2 vaccinated group, indicating that the vaccine was 100% efficacious in
this analysis against severe disease by the CDC definition (95% CI, [88.0,100.0]). Twenty-one severe
2
cases, as defined by the FDA, were observed in the placebo group versus one case in the BNT162b2
vaccinated group, indicating 95.3% efficacy by the FDA definition (95% CI, [71.0, 99.9]).
Efficacy was generally consistent across age, gender, race and ethnicity demographics, and across
participants with a variety of underlying conditions.
A total of 697 cases of COVID-19 were observed in the United States; 647 cases of COVID-19 were
observed in the placebo group versus 50 in the vaccine group, indicating vaccine efficacy of 92.6%
(95% CI, [90.1, 94.5]).
In South Africa, where the B.1.351 lineage is prevalent and 800 participants were enrolled, nine cases
of COVID-19 were observed, all in the placebo group, indicating vaccine efficacy of 100% (95% CI,
[53.5, 100.0]). In an exploratory analysis, the nine strains were sequenced and six of the nine were
confirmed to be of the B.1.351 lineage. These data support previous results from immunogenicity
studies demonstrating that BNT162b2 induced a robust neutralizing antibody response to the B1.351
variant, and although lower than to the wild-type strain, it does not appear to affect the high observed
efficacy against this variant.i
No serious safety concerns were observed in trial participants up to six months after the second dose.
Side effects were generally consistent with previously reported results. Vaccine safety has now been
evaluated in more than 44,000 participants aged 16 years and older with more than 12,000 vaccinated
participants having at least six months of follow-up after their second dose.
Pfizer and BioNTech plan to submit detailed data for scientific peer review and potential publication in
the near future.
