Vaccine hope amid lethal surge

Experimental Covid-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna may be nearing the finish line after new data showed they were 95% and 94.5% effective, a dose of optimism as virus cases soar in the U.S. and around the world. Pfizer plans to seek emergency authorization from the FDA within days. "For the last nine months, we've been absolutely ground down by wearing masks and staying indoors," Dr. Gabor Kelen of Johns Hopkins University told Quicktake anchor Tim Stenovec on Take Charge.

"Now there's hope—there's real light at the end of the tunnel."

But not before Thanksgiving. The CDC urged Americans not to travel and state and local officials are ratcheting up restrictions as virus deaths surpass 250,000 heading into winter.Andrew Mach
