Pfizer's phase three clinical trial for its Covid-19 vaccine candidate has encountered no safety problems even after over 12,000 volunteers had been administered a second dose.
The pharmaceutical giant also announced on Tuesday that it had enrolled the 30,000 subjects initially targeted and was now aiming to expand the trial to a further 14,000.
The company is developing the vaccine alongside Germany's BioNTech SE.
