The U.S. is starting a coronavirus vaccine trial in humans — media

The full introduction of a potential vaccine will take from 12 to 18 months


Vaccine trials will be conducted on 45 young and healthy volunteers at the Seattle Research Institute.

The first participant in the clinical trials of the COVID-19 coronavirus protection vaccine will receive an experimental dose on Monday, March 16th. It is reported by the Associated Press, citing a source in the US government.






Tests are said will be conducted on 45 young and healthy volunteers at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in Seattle, with varying doses of the vaccine developed by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Moderna Inc.

Health sources say that the full introduction of a potential vaccine will take from 12 to 18 months.

“The likelihood of infection of the participants in the experiment is excluded since the samples do not contain the virus. The task of the test is to make sure that the vaccines do not have serious side effects, after which it will be possible to start wider tests,” the agency’s source said.

Inovio Pharmaceuticals will also try to test its vaccine in April with dozens of volunteers at the University of Pennsylvania and the testing center in Kansas City, Missouri.

Currently, the number of cases of coronavirus infection in the United States is close to 3.5 thousand, 65 people have died.
