Turkey says China's CoronaVac efficacy 91.25%, likely to increase

ANKARA, December 24 (Reuters). A COVID-19 vaccine developed by China's Sinovac Biotech is 91.25% effective and rates are likely to rise based on data from late-stage studies, Turkish researchers said Thursday as the country becomes the second study website to provide results for the Chinese candidate to produce.
The researchers, who are part of the government's Science Council, said no major symptoms were noted during CoronaVac's trials in Turkey, other than one person who had an allergic reaction.
Turkey had agreed to source 50 million cans of CoronaVac from Sinovac by December 11, but shipping was delayed. Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said the vaccines would arrive in Turkey on Monday, adding that Turkey would vaccinate around 9 million people in the first group, starting with health workers.
