The vaccine was administered to four volunteers

In the United States, four volunteers were given a new vaccine. There will be 45 volunteers in total, and trials will last more than a year.

The first four volunteers received the Covid-19 coronavirus vaccine, developed in record time.

Research is being conducted at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in Seattle, USA. On Monday, March 16, reports AP.

In total, 45 volunteers aged 18 to 55 years will take part in the tests. They will receive different doses of the vaccine developed by Moderna, a biotechnology company based in Massachusetts, and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).

At the same time, US medical officials say that it will take 12 to 18 months to fully approve any potential vaccine.

In addition, it is reported that a clinical trial of an anti-coronavirus vaccine developed by Inovio Pharmaceuticals, an American company, at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Kansas City Test Center will begin in April. The test will be attended by several dozen volunteers.

As of the morning of March 17, 182,727 people were infected with coronavirus in the world, 79,883 people recovered, 7174 people died.

In February, it was reported that Moderna, an American biotechnology company, introduced the mRNA-1273 vaccine from COVID-19, which is planned to be tested in humans.

And in the Netherlands, scientists have found an antibody to coronavirus. This is the first antibody that blocks infection, scientists say, but emphasize that it will take months to research.
