The Race for a Coronavirus Vaccine


In Race for a Coronavirus Vaccine, an Oxford Group Leaps Ahead

by By 

In the worldwide race for a vaccine to stop the coronavirus, the laboratory sprinting fastest is at Oxford University.

Most other teams have had to start with small clinical trials of a few hundred participants to demonstrate safety. But scientists at the university’s Jenner Institute had a head start on a vaccine, having proved in previous trials that similar inoculations — including one last year against an earlier coronavirus — were harmless to humans.

That has enabled them to leap ahead and schedule tests of their new coronavirus vaccine involving more than 6,000 people by the end of next month, hoping to show not only that it is safe, but also that it works.

The Oxford scientists now say that with an emergency approval from regulators, the first few million doses of their vaccine could be available by September — at least several months ahead of any of the other announced efforts — if it proves to be effective.

    • Not entirely true, they are currently doing human trials on a CV19 vaccine here in Britain and early reports are positive. The Chinese have two CV19 vaccines in trials and there are others working on vaccines too.

  1. I’m dubious about any vaccine claims for a virus that said claimants cannot, or will not, in the first instance, acknowledge is an engineered bio-weapon that was intentionally released. Under that condition, I’m inclined to think a vaccine exists already, and has as a concurrently developed anti-dote to the weapon.
