Baltimore Researchers Mark One Year Since First Pfizer-BioNTech Experimental COVID-19 Vaccine Shot Given To Study Volunteer

May 4, 2021
Baltimore researchers involved in the first Pfizer-BioNTech experimental COVID-19 vaccine candidate marked the one-year mark from the first shot delivered to a study volunteer. “It was really unchartered territory,” the study’s co-principal investigator Dr. Kirsten Lyke said. “We got thousands and thousands of people. I think just people wanted to do something and this was their way of participating.” The study at the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health started with four vaccine candidates. Dr. Lyke and others were not sure which one would prove effective, if any.
